With the wettest weather ever recorded affecting our native South West England, Network Rail is working hard to reopen the track. At Dawlish, 80 metres of sea wall has been swept away, causing the railway at this point to collapse into the sea. We were asked to supply and install a Lobster Pot camera at very short notice to monitor and film the work, which is estimated to take six weeks. Teams are working 24/7 to restore this vital lifeline. The camera is safely installed on a balcony overlooking the site - and it's uploading a new, print quality picture every five minutes.
