One young girl was so angered by moves to get rid of huts at Manor End to make way for luxury flats that she has written to the council.

One young girl was so angered by moves to get rid of huts at Manor End to make way for luxury flats that she has written to the council.

Promenaders queued up to back the Evening Star's campaign to save the resort's beach huts.

News that 58 beach hut owners are going to be evicted from their beloved hideaways next spring has dismayed seaside-goers as petition forms continue to flood in.

The controversial clearance will make room for a multi-million pound housing and leisure development by Broor Homes.

The council have offered Felixstowe residents 14 places further up the beach for their huts but this leaves many with nowhere to go and offers Ipswich residents no alternative.

The threat of Felixstowe being robbed of a piece of its seaside history has left people angry and defiant that they will not give in lightly.
