The Sheringham-based snapper was in Cromer this morning (Wednesday, October 2) as the high tide surged into the resort town's sea wall.

Sea spray can be seen leaping high into the air as the waves crash into the concrete, the sea itself capped with white foam.

One of the shots shows a delivery lorry making its way along the Esplanade, which was later filmed making its way back amid the surging waves.

It follows several days of particularly high tides around Norfolk which has seen coastal communities put on alert.

More than 3,000 homes were evacuated in centres such as Hunstanton, Heacham and Snettisham, but the high water has thankfully passed without the severe flooding seen in some previous years, such as 2013.
