Norfolk cliff-top homes in a "precarious position"

Thirteen cliff-top chalets in Hemsby, Norfolk, remain in a “precarious position” after they were evacuated at the weekend.

Cliff-top homes in danger of collapsing into the sea off the Norfolk coast remain in a “precarious position” Great Yarmouth Borough Council leader Graham Plant has told the BBC, and it was “too dangerous” for residents of the chalets close to the cliff edge to return to their homes.

A shed and an oil tank has already fell into the sea when high winds and waves eroded the dunes.

The homes are being inspected after each high tide, but it looks unlikely that residents could return home before Tuesday, according to Plant

The cliffs at Hemsby are made of sand which has suffered erosion over many years and the chalets are sited on privately-owned land.
