THE Westward Ho! gate to Northam Burrows has reopened today (Weds) after a number of incidents of vandalism forced it to shut yesterday.

Torridge District Council, who owns the gate, confirmed yesterday the damage had been caused some time overnight between Monday and Tuesday, and they were working to fix it.

Staff normally close the gate and dusk and open it again at dawn, but found they could not unlock it this morning.

A police spokesman said three locks had been damaged in more than one incident between Thursday and today (Tues).
