Photos taken by resident Colin McKenzie show cyclists having to carefully push their bikes along the buried path, which had become indistinguishable from the beach itself.

A spokesman from Arun District Council said as much of the shingle as possible had been brushed away, but that a digger would be required to clear the worst-affected parts.
