A road between Paignton and Torquay is to be investigated after large holes have appeared.
Torbay Council’s transport working party heard there were fears a seafront road could be affected by large holes continuing to appear after severe winter storms, the BBC reports.
Councillors had earlier heard that it had been hoped work to fill a hole that appeared after a previous storm would last several years.
However, another hole, 9m deep, appeared in March after the sea wall had been battered by waves.

Liberal Democrat Steve Darling asked the working party what checks had been done to make sure the road was not built on a “honeycomb” of cavities.
Torbay Council highways manager Ian Jones said: “Storm Emma has proved there are still some issues. We need to do some form of survey work there, to see what things might be or might not be lurking under there.”
