Footage from a north Norfolk coastal village has shown the dramatic extent of the winter surge flooding.
The village of Walcott was on a flood alert this morning (Tuesday, December 8), but newly installed drains ensured the community escaped unscathed.
But this video of the coastal road captured at 9.30am this morning shows the extent the surface was submerged under water as waves crashed over the sea wall.
Harry Spencer, 23, a roofing contractor from Bacton, shot the video as his friend Jason Gotts drove an off-road vehicle along the seafront.
He said: 'Police shut the road off not long after this.
