Council officials, police, Coastguard officers and Environment Agency staff were on Hunstanton’s Spinney yesterday for an event aimed at giving beach and flood safety advice to residents and visitors.
Brian Long, West Norfolk Council cabinet member for environment, said: “We work year round with residents and businesses in the area but it is much more difficult to get beach safety and flood prevention messages to those who are only in the area for a relatively short time.
“Many of our visitors have property in the area and information about flooding and flood protection is vital for them, as is signing up for flood alerts so that they know in advance if they need to get their property secured.”
