East Yorkshire coastal survey measures erosion rate

Help

A survey of the East Yorkshire coast has been carried out amid fears heavy rain over the summer has caused the cliffs to crack and weaken, exacerbating coastal erosion.

On average the coast has been crumbling away at a rate of 5.5ft (1.7m) each year but in the last six months, almost 22ft (7m) of coastline have been lost in places.
