However the holes have appeared due to ongoing erosion at the beach at Winterton.

As these drone photographs by Simon Carter show a large stretch of the beach has now been cordoned off to the public.

Huge amounts of sand have been washed away over the course of more than a week, creating a shelf effect with gaping holes beneath.

There are fears Second World war tank traps could now pose a risk.
