Coastal beauty spots that may be lost to the sea

Seaside beauty spots around the East coast may be lost to the sea if nature is allowed to take its course.

It's been reported that some areas of the coast have been hit by years' worth of erosion in just the past three months.

The tidal surge of last December together with one of the wettest winters on record has wreaked havoc along the East coast.

In April the National Trust is to publish a report highlighting those areas in the Anglia region in a critical state.
