Recovery starts after surging tides

A recovery operation on Tynemouth Longsands is underway this morning after the surging storm on Thursday.

North Tyneside Council officers are reminding people to stay away from the beaches this morning as they continue the recovery work.

Railings along the beach were ripped up and bricks have fallen from the walkway near to Crusoes cafe in Tynemouth.
