Councillors have approved plans which will see steps at a north Norfolk beach removed at the end of the week.

North Norfolk District Council’s cabinet met today to discuss removing the stand-alone steps at Happisburgh’s west beach from Thursday.

The plans will see the structure stored and maintained locally until erosion rates are stabilised.

Angie Fitch-Tillett, cabinet member for coastal matters, said it was “regrettable” the steps had to be removed.

Happisburgh resident Stephen Burke said the council had “ignored more than 1600 people” who signed a petition calling for the steps to be reopened.

Monitoring cliff erosion will continue.
