The house is one of several overhanging the dunes and a toilet, chair and a wardrobe are among the utilities and furnishings which have slid down to the beach.

Over the past few days removal firm RHT and crew members from Hemsby Lifeboat have assisted residents in removing the majority of their possessions from their houses.
