Clifftop home demolished as councillor warns of impact on local economy

A number of clifftop homes are at risk of toppling into the sea during high spring tides, with people evacuated and the situation looking 'pretty miserable'. Several wooden properties, built on sand dunes at Hemsby in Norfolk, are perilously close to the waves due to coastal erosion. Keith Kyriacou, chairman of Hemsby Parish Council, said he believed two or three homes had been evacuated so far and the village hall is on standby in case people need to stay there. Source: PA
