Last night it was announced by Great Yarmouth Borough Council that the homes will be ripped down with contractors Anglian Demolition and Asbestos Ltd setting up today ahead of the demolition work.

This morning there were more settled conditions along the coastline but the sea could be seen swirling under the home of Lance Martin, who faces the heartbreak of losing his home.

Mr Martin, 60 and an army veteran, had bought his home in November,

Following the severe erosion in March, that led to five homes on The Marrams being demolished, Mr Martin planned to jack up his property and slide it some 25m forward towards the road.
