New signage that notifies visitors and residents of when the next high tide is has been launched at Cart Gap, near Happisburgh.

Mark Howson, a volunteer at Happisburgh Coast Watch, said: “As well as keeping an eye on the shipping it is important to make sure visitors to the beach are safe, as well.

“Knowing when the next high tide is will keep visitors informed. Safety on the beach is important as the tide can catch you out very quickly if it’s on its way in.”

As well as the new information board, visitors and locals can buy tide and time books for a minimum donation of £1.50 each to Happisburgh Coast Watch.
