Coastal communities in Norfolk are pleading for Government help to protect their clifftop homes from the sea.
Erosion has left 13 properties in The Marrams, Hemsby on the brink of being swept away, with some already starting to crumble.
Residents have been evacuated and they have called for more funding to provide proper sea defences.
Today more than 4,000 people have signed a petition calling for adequate sea defences for a "unique and cherished place".
"We're hoping the Government would now look at this and get some sort of sea defence through here. If it keeps on like this we've got another road behind us and we'll then have more risk to life as well."
Norfolk councillor John Fuller, who is the Conservative's National Head of Local Finance and Chair of District Councils, admitted it was a "difficult situation" when it came to responsibility.
He said that in emergency situations like this "it's not the role of the politicians necessarily to interfere".
“There are 13 properties that are now currently uninhabitable with two to three properties expected to topple over the cliff over the next few days."
Businesses at a Norfolk seaside resort hit by coastal erosion are calling on visitors to support them this Easter weekend.
The demolition has begun of five homes at risk of falling into the sea on the Norfolk coast.
Five cliff-top homes at risk of falling into the sea at Hemsby in Norfolk will be demolished over the coming days.
