    Give us a clue, it wants me to register to access the site and Littlehampton is not usually very newsworthy as far as I am concerned.

    Just click the little X in the top right corner and kill the pop-up.

    At least one of our colleagues is going to be £2500 poorer.

    I have never been into Littlehampton and my Reeds isn't to hand, but many harbours have entry signals or lights which can be fairly conspicuous. Does L'hampton not have these? If not, it sounds as if they should.

    Looks like the dredger could be usefully employed in widening the entrance channel to reduce its risk of running aground.

    Been in several times in a dredger and coaster and the pilot,who is the harbourmaster comes out at high water and to observant Mariners this is an indication that a large vessel will be entering,that was a few years ago so I guess the standards of seamanship have gone down,shame.Littlehampton is a port with a great deal of history in shipping and shipbuilding a pity harbour users are not more aware of its heritage

    More of a pity that the harbourmaster can’t be bothered getting leading lights and beacons and harbour signals repaired for anything from 6 months to 3 years

    Why don't they just leave it to a battle of wills between thin GRP layup and 1/2 inch steel plate?
