Huge sand dune designed to prevent major gas terminal falling into sea

In a UK first, 10,000 cubic metres of sand is being pumped every hour to create a 6km (3.7 mile) sand barrier to prevent Bacton gas terminal, which supplies a third of the UK’s gas, from tumbling over the edge of a cliff into the sea.

It's hoped it will also save the coastline, as well as the villages nearby.
