Dawlish flooding

The latest gales and high tides have wrecked the iconic ex-Great Western Railway line along Dawlish Warren and the seafront of Dawlish town.  It’s a far cry from the usual picture of GWR Kings and Castles on a sunny summer’s day.  The sea wall has been breached in places and the rails are hanging in mid-air.  It’s going to take a lot of work to get this going again. 

The following, very small, pictures come from the BBC website I’ll try and update them when I can find something better.

Update – better photographs added from the BBC.
