Foolish walkers spotted climbing crumbling Norfolk cliffs

Walkers climbing crumbling cliffs in Norfolk - just a week after a man was killed by collapsing debris in Suffolk - have been branded "foolish".

This picture was taken by a visitor to West Runton beach, near Sheringham on Saturday morning.

It shows two walkers making their way up the fragile cliffs at the north Norfolk coastal village. Just over a week ago the East coast was battered by a tidal surge which led to many homes being evacuated.

Workers at West Runton Beach Cafe shared the photograph on their Facebook page - together with a warning to beachgoers. They and many commenters described the pair as "foolish".

"The cliffs have suffered massive collapses this week during and after the surge and are still falling. These people are not only putting themselves at risk but also the emergency services that will attempt to rescue them if the inevitable happens.

"How many people have to get hurt before it sinks in? Do not climb the cliffs!"

Last weekend a man was killed when part of the battered cliffs at Thorpeness in Suffolk collapsed on top of him.

It prompted a warning from the UK coastguard to stay away from cliff edges and bases.
