A BEACH hut at Saunton Sands has been demolished following the stormy seas over the weekend.

On Sunday, the hut, which normally hires deck chairs and sun beds, was cordoned off due to its dangerous structure.

Huge waves which had engulfed the hut had shattered the sea-ward facing, concrete wall.

On Monday, the hut was demolished. Click the gallery on the right for more photos.
