The tidal surge which battered West Norfolk’s coastline last month is expected to cost the council £96,886.

West Norfolk Council is facing a large bill following the high waves and winds which hit the coast on December 5.

A beach patrol hut in Hunstanton was washed away during the floods and the council is facing a provisional cost of £15,000 to replace this.

It has also added £75,000 into its capital programme budgets to replace flood boards along Hunstanton’s promenade with flood gates.

The council has also provided extra skips for homes and businesses to clear up debris. It collected around 2.5 tonnes of waste which cost around £250.

n Snettisham Parish Council is looking to volunteers to clear up of beach of debris left by the surge. The council will be running a community litter pick from 11am on Sunday. Volunteers are to meet at the beach car park.
