A REPAIR project worth £3.4million is set to start this week to ensure a town is protected from flooding and erosion.

The work to Seaham’s North Pier will safeguard about 100 homes and 30 businesses from the deterioration caused by storm waves as they crash over the harbour.

Planning officers said it was needed to protect £300million worth of homes and trade, with the pier to fail within a decade if it was not restored.
