The village of Fairbourne is to be left to the mercy of the sea under council plans

Families in a Welsh coastal resort say they are living in the “village of the damned” as they have been left trapped in homes abandoned to the sea by the authorities.

Residents in Fairbourne, Cardigan Bay, are preparing for a lengthy legal tussle with Gwynedd council over the plans to “decommission” the village and see its streets swallowed by the Irish Sea.

Villagers have dismissed the plans, based on the idea the area simply can’t be protected from coastal erosion and rising sea levels, as “nonsensical”.

Reports suggest they want compensation over attempts to move them.
