Storm Damage to the Heugh Breakwater

What we know about this image :

The Heugh Breakwater, Headland Hartlepool, was damaged during a severe storm. A large chunk of concrete from the upper level became detached, was pushed across lower level, and lodged in the wire railings. A further chunk was also loose and in danger of collapsing onto walkway. Tees & Hartlepool Port Authority Maintenance personnel, Mr. Eddie Porrit (Asst. Foreman) Ian Ogle (Crane driver), Alec Simpson (Health and Safety) and Sergeant Brooker Harbour Police (taking the photograph), eventually made it safe.
