Now You See It - Now You Don't?
The headline is not as bad as it seems as it's 4 lighthouses out of many. However it seems to be setting a dangerous precedent. I'm sure that mariners use these lighthouses more than some think, if only for reassurance rather than anything. I wonder what the outcome of the consultation will be. At the end of the day it comes down to money and risk. Yes, switching them off will save money, but will it increase the dangers to mariners significantly? If the answer to that is 'yes' then they will stay but time will tell.
