After the recent storms along the West coast of Wales the clean up as begun..!! While walking this morning I came across these two mini diggers trying to clear debris from Tywyn prom now who in there right mind would do this for a job when there's stones the size of house bricks are battering your machine windows. Fortunately they gave up after after deciding they where fighting a losing battle Click image for larger version

They were from North wales contracted out to help clean up but what I don't understand is what's the point because next week it will be just as bad. I did point out to them that they should be wearing life jackets especially when one got out to talk to he other after that big wave, it was clearly getting worse and those waves were getting bigger Click image for larger version

well if he is the foreman giving instructions he should be ashamed of himself, for letting them start work in the first place and for approaching the machine while the bucket is not in safe position and for allowing the other machine to be left without an operator and the bucket not in a safe position! similar poor practice caused an operator to be killed not long ago in part of business, caused lots of changes afterwards but still left someone dead and a family without a father
