ON A recent trip to Holland which took me around the outskirts of Antwerp and Amsterdam, I saw large panels of concave shaped Perspex/glass on either side of the carriageway, obviously to deflect crosswinds.These panels were at times 10-15ft high, varying in width and stretched for miles. Surely something on these lines could be mounted by fixing panels into slots and bolted to Weston's sea wall when high tides are forecast, then removed during summer months, thus giving us protection and also satisfy the hoteliers along the seafront.Or maybe erect screens similar to those around aquatic display areas at SeaWorld in the USA where even dolphins and whales knock against the screen.NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
