Shoebury residents say "we don't want this sea wall here"
RESIDENTS turned out en masse in a massive show of people power to send a message to Southend Council that they want their sea wall plans dropped.
More than 200 turned up this lunchtime to say “no” to the plan to build a two metre high earth embankment across Shoebury Common.
They followed a camp set up by a handful of Skipp protesters from Friday until this evening, to demonstrate their opposition to the scheme.
The council maintains that their preferred option is the least intrusive and would protect 500 homes.
