Successful new tenant...<br />
<br />
We will fight them for the beach huts...<br />
<br />
A group of hardy souls queued up a day early in the freezing cold to secure a sought-after beach hut for the summer.<br />
<br />
They have gone to extreme lengths to snap up the 15 timber cabins available at Avon Beach, Christchurch, Dorset.<br />
<br />
The first in the queue, Jan Ryder, was in position at 6.15am on Sunday, almost 26 hours before the administration office opened at 7.30am today.<br />
<br />
Matthew Cox, 60, a mechanical engineer, was in position just before 7am. He remembers being taken to the beach by his late mother Margaret as a child and has queued up each year for a hut since her passing three years ago.
