The work has been carried out by Freedom Group, a power engineering services company.

Resident Adrian Baker, speaking at a meeting of Beadnell Parish Council, said: “The Benty down to the harbour has been done and, speaking as a resident who was very dubious about how they were going to do it, I think they have done a brilliant job.

“It’s been a nightmare for them. It’s taken them two years to get in touch with the people because of the number of holiday homes but they’ve done a really nice tidy job.

The parish council agreed to send a letter of thanks to Freedom Group, founded in 1996 with an entrepreneurial management buyout from Yorkshire Electricity.
