Several homes at Hemsby are on the brink of collapsing over a cliff edge - as these pictures reveal.
A number of structures have already collapsed over the edge including a shed, tank and wooden fence.
The coastline in the village was battered by fierce waves and high winds on Saturday causing widespread erosion.
Residents living in properties on the sea side of The Marrams in Hemsby were evacuated and are staying in alternative homes or hotels.
The pictures show the significant damage caused to the coast and in some cases homes are literally on the edge of the cliff.
At one house the erosion has already started to undercut the property.
Police cordons are in place along the seafront and members of the public have been warned to stay away from the area.
The next high tide is due at around 9pm this evening.
