Fife Council is to replace an old seawall which has been damaged for almost a year.

Happies Close in West Wemyss, was found to be falling apart in 2018.

It was screened off from the public, but continued to be in a dangerous state.

The council assessed it and found that the wall – estimated to be 150 to 200 years old – it was causing a risk to residents and coastal walkers.

At Levenmouth area committee, it was agreed that up to £15,000 be put towards its repair.

The total cost is expected to come in at around £25,000.

Councillor David Graham said: “Having worked with the local residents on this issue for a while now I’m delighted to see the resources approved to have the wall reconstructed.
