A set of steps where a wall previously collapsed narrowly missing a schoolboy have been closed following safety concerns.
The White Lion Steps in Gorleston between Cliff Hill and Beach Road have been fenced off by Norfolk County Council.
A spokesman for the council said the stairwell will remain closed until the land beside the path is at no risk of falling onto the steps.
In 2012, a "landslip" caused tons of bricks and soil to cascade over the well-used route, narrowly avoiding a 12-year-old boy.
The route remained partially blocked for a number of years before it was fully reopened.
Residents have been advised to use an alternative route down to Beach Road.
