An upcoming episode of Countryfile focuses on Norfolk's beaches and investigates how storms are devouring the coastline.

John Craven and Matt Baker visit the east coast of England and find out how storms have impacted homes and livelihoods in the area.

Craven visits Happisburgh in north Norfolk, which loses two metres of land to the sea every year and this rate is predicted to accelerate in the near future.

North Norfolk News: A shot of the same stretch of cliffs in Happisburgh in 2021.

Focusing on the impact of coastal erosion on people living in the area, the episode features one resident who has already lost her home but has bought another in the town.

At the same time, her neighbour is watching her house edge ever closer to being claimed by the sea - the same sea she swims in to help with her anxiety.

Dr David Waterhouse, a senior curator at the Norfolk Museums Service, also features in the episode.

He gives details about the history of the Norfolk coast, where mammoth skeletons have been found and prehistoric human footprints discovered.

He said: "Happisburgh is the fastest eroding coastline in northern Europe, although there are obviously huge negatives of this, we tried to see the silver lining in that coastal erosion exposes the layers containing millions of year old fossils."

The episode also sees Tom Heap investigating the threat to Britain’s breadbasket, while Adam Henson looks into the impact of new farm payments. 

The episode will be aired on Sunday, March 5, at 7pm on BBC one.
