Southsea promenade flood defence wall collapses into sea

A section of promenade in Portsmouth has been cordoned off after part of a flood defence wall fell into the sea.

A large crack appeared in the pavement above the wall behind the Pyramids Centre in Southsea, sometime between 25 and 26 December.

The council is looking at propping up what is left of the wall and filling the hole with 2,000 tonnes of rock.

Council leader Donna Jones admitted bad weather could hamper efforts.
