A former soldier from Norfolk who built DIY defences to protect his clifftop home from falling into the sea has lost another 15ft of land during Storm Darcy.

Lance Martin, 63, lives in Hemsby and previously lost almost 100ft of sand dune to the tides during the Beast from the East in 2018.

There were 13 homes in his row and his is the last one left- with his property now just 50ft from the edge.

Mr Martin said he hopes to rearrange 75 two-tonne concrete blocks on the beach below to break the force of the waves.

It is not just homes at the mercy of the weather. Crew at the local lifeboat station say that erosion has left them struggling to do their job.
