Beach prepares for summer influx

Dumper trucks and an excavator are being brought in help prepare one of the busiest beaches in Suffolk for the summer tourism season.

Beach material at Lowestoft is being moved and reshaped to raise and even out low sand levels.

Waveney District Council said the work will continue until 5 June.

A spokeswoman for the authority said the work would also provide the foundation for protection of the seawall during the coming winter.
