One reader doesn’t understand why they have to ‘always’ knock down the houses in Hemsby when there is coastal erosion.

Why do they have to smash up the Hemsby homes?

A question that has always cropped up in my mind whenever I see reports like those recently on coastal erosion at Hemsby is, why do ‘they’ always have to knock the houses down?

They are almost always wooden chalet bungalows, why can’t they just jack them up slightly then, with a forklift vehicle, tow them back to another site some way further back?

Why do workmen always have to solve every problem by smashing everything up?
