East Yorkshire MP Sir Greg Knight has secured a commitment from the Government than the Minster for coastal erosion will visit the Holderness Coast ‘shortly’ to look at the problems surrounding coastal erosion.

The East Yorkshire coastline has suffered erosion for many years but Sir Greg said he was concerned that the process was accelerating.

He adds: “It is not economically viable to defend every inch of coastline against erosion but there are other steps that can be taken and I am delighted that the Minister Rory Stewart MP is coming here very soon to see the situation for himself”.
