East Coast beaches 'fast disappearing'

29 July 2014 Last updated at 23:23 BST

The hot weather has brought a promising start to the season for many holiday resorts.

But along the East Coast some of the beaches are fast disappearing. Up to half a mile of land is being lost every 50 years due to coastal erosion.

The problem has been made worse by this winter's storms which caused more than £18m worth of damage along the Norfolk and Suffolk coasts.

Sian Lloyd reports.
