A section of cliff collapsed over the weekend close to the Kiln Cliffs Caravan Park following Friday's storm surge.

However, Mundesley Promenade has been re-opened this morning by North Norfolk District Council.

The Coastguard has issued a warning to the public to avoid walking close to the edges and foots of cliffs after a man was crushed to death in a cliff slide at Thorpeness in Suffolk on Saturday.

North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) leader Tom FitzPatrick said: 'Staff have been working alongside the community flood wardens, police, fire and coastguard to help our communities in the face of the surge and gale force winds; and for our teams the focus now is on helping the community to clear the debris and get everything safe and open to the public as quickly as possible.'

Paula Gray who owns the Beach Hut Cafe in Mundesley said: 'The storm surge was not as bad as expected here. The Promenade opened this morning so we seem to have got off fairly lightly.

'I think the council has done a very good job in looking after the area. The only time there is damage to the seafront is when the weather is unusually bad.'
