Jill Wareham, Liberal Democrat Prospective MP for the Island, is calling again for urgent discussions to take place to save the Military Road.

Jill Wareham steps up campaign to save the Military Road

Jill Wareham, Liberal Democrat Prospective MP for the Island, is stepping her campaign to 'Save the Military Road'. She said: "Urgent action is needed as the road is likely to be closed very shortly if the erosion carries on as it has over the past week or two. I have visited the area where the cliff is closest to the road between Brook and Compton over the past two weekends. The first visit revealed a cliff fall at this point and in the past week another substantial fall has taken place. The footpath has slipped over the edge and the distance between the cliff edge and the fence along the road is now only 5m."
