Coastguard volunteers have warned people to be careful when walking near stretches of eroding cliffs.
Hunstanton Coastguard Rescue Team have issued a safety warning after part of the cliffs at the town collapsed on the beach below.
The famous red and white striped cliffs at Hunstanton are a popular attraction that draw visitors to see the layers of different coloured rock.
However the cliffs can be unstable and recent days have seen a large section collapsed onto the sands below.
