A lorry driver has braved the waves as the North Sea threw its might into Cromer's seafront.

The delivery lorry was filmed in front of Cromer Pier this morning (Wednesday, October 2) at about 9.30am, when the tide was high.

The driver needed to make it to Melbourne Slope, further down the esplanade, which leads to higher ground.

But he or she seemed to have second thoughts as huge waves came crashing over the sea wall, drenching the seafront.

But after a minute, the driver decided to go for it and drove off towards the slope. A video of the moment was shared on the Enjoy Cromer More Facebook group by Keith Jones.
