Repairs to flood-damaged sea defences in Sheringham will start next year after North Norfolk District Council's cabinet passed improvement plans today.

More than £800,000 will be spent on the western promenade area before April and just over half the cash, up to £419,000, will come from the Environment Agency.

Part of it will see the promenade widened by one metre, creating more public space.

Extensive damage was caused during the December 5 tidal surge last year.

Councillors also approved £115,000 of improvements to the fishermen's gangway during the cabinet meeting at the authority's headquarters in Cromer.

It will include resurfacing, new steel boat tie-up rings, a new winch and winch house.

The funding will come from a £75,000 Marine Management Organisation FLAG project grant and £40,000 from the sale of the town's Lockerbie Flats.
