Don’t be tempted to try this, says Hill Head Lib Dem campaigner Alex Brims. You could put yourself at risk of a soaking or worse.

Walkers have fallen while trying to clamber over groynes or along privately-owned walls as they attempt to walk along parts of Hill Head beach which have become impassable at high tide.

To avoid damage to beach defences or injury to yourself, best advice is to time your walks for when the tide is lower.

You can see Met Office tide tables here. http://tinyurl.com/y8c5m3to.

The beach is altering swiftly just now and the East Solent Coastal Partnership is monitoring the changes. We’ll keep you posted.
