STORMY weather and high tides have made a big impact on Lyme Regis beach this weekend.
The rough seas have taken away a large amount of sand and left a steep ridge on the town’s main beach.

Sharing photos on social media, Dorset councillor Daryl Turner said the sand levels were the lowest he had seen since the coastal protection works saw the beach completely revamped in 2007, topped with imported French sand.
The stormy weather has exposed red brick below the stone jetty and ledges on the beach.
The beach is expected to be levelled out later in the year as part of regular re-profiling works.
