Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner Christopher Salmon has praised the teams and individuals dealing with the aftermath of Aberystwyth’s January storm.

South Wales saw one of the fiercest storms of recent years last week, with giant waves hammering the promenade in Aberystwyth causing tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage.

Mr Salmon visited the town on Wednesday, January 8, to develop a deeper understanding of the issues facing the community.

He said: “The damage to the seafront is devastating and there’s a prodigious amount of work being done to turn things around.

“I have nothing but praise for all those involved in keeping the townsfolk safe over the past couple of weeks and for those working hard to help people overcome their difficulties.

“That includes police officers, the RNLI and workers from a range of agencies and organisations.”

In Aberystwyth, Mr Salmon met business people such as Jane and Richard Griffiths, of the seafront Richmond Hotel.

He spoke to Aberystwyth University Students’ Union officers Grace Burton and Jamie Barker about the challenge being faced by scholars living on the Prom.

Mr Salmon heard from police figures such as Inspector Lynn Rees and PCSO David Goffin and was given a briefing on community hopes by Mayor of Aberystwyth Wendy Morris-Twiddy and fellow town councillors Brenda Haines and Mair Benjamin.
