Burnham Sailing Club launches clear-up and repairs after storms

Strong winds and high tides left Burnham-On-Sea Sailing Club with a big clear-up operation and repairs this week.

The stormy conditions damaged the club's pontoons in the River Brue and led to a large amount of debris being washed up, as pictured.

"The wooden structure of the pontoons suffered some damage from the force of the waves on Tuesday morning," a club spokesman told "Fortunately, we've managed to put a temporary repair in place to keep it operational."

The Environment Agency closed the town's seafront flood gates at the jetty, Sailing Club and Maddock's Slade to prevent any flooding along The Esplanade.
