THREE new bulldozers will be used to manage the beach and shingle to ensure the fishing fleet stays mobile.

They were purchased by the Hastings Fishermen’s Protection Society with the help of Axis 4 European Fisheries Funding secured through the Hastings Fisheries Local Action Group (FLAG).

Paul Joy, chair of Hastings Fishermen’s Protection Society, said: “Without them it would become impossible for us to get off the beach to fish. These machines can plough in the shingle to create the right gradient.”
