£7500 isn't going to provide much protection from either the sea, storms, or from trophy hunters, but it is a start. Staying buried in the sand seems to have done the best job of protecting it for quite some time.
One of the big issues with this aircraft is that it lies in the intertidal zone between a marine ecological sanctuary, and a landward ecological sanctuary, so any attempt at removing it will be especially delicate.
I don't see that any government is taking it under their purview, only that there is a small grant to try to provide some protection while nothing else is happening. It is unfortunate that no institution is willing to step up and provide for its immediate conservation, and long term care and feeding. Everybody wants it, but they all want someone else to do the hard work.
By now, it is back under the sand awaiting the next set of conditions that result in it surfacing. My prediction is that we'll see it again in the spring of 2021.
