Stoke Fleming Parish Council has issued an update on the wall through the village that has closed the A379. 

The scaffolding, erected by Savage Scaffolding, has been removed and Elliot Construction has started work.

The stone from the wall, which was judged to be in a "really bad state" and "on the verge of collapse", has been saved and stored for rebuilding the wall at a later date. 

A spokesperon for Stoke Fleming Parish Council said: "The scaffolding has been removed, thank you Savage Scaffolding for your efforts and especially how quickly you have responded to erect and remove scaffolding allowing Elliot Construction to carry out work.

"Elliot Construction have taken down all of the wall that needed to be removed by hand, they have bagged up 100 tons of stone. The stone has been taken away for safe storage.

"Engineers can see that the wall was in a really bad state, and was on the verge of collapse.

"A digger has now moved in and has started work. Tomorrow morning [Tuesday] at 8am there will be two large tractors and dump trailers arriving and running for at least two days helping with excavation.

"The tractors will have to turn in the top entrance to Bidders and reverse down the road. Apologies in advance to the residents of Bidders for this disruption."
