Living on the Edge
Do you live in an area that has already suffered coastal erosion? What impact has it had on you? Or are you worried you may have to move home?
A report by the National Trust out today urges Wales to take "urgent action" to prepare for the impact of coastal erosion and flooding. The Trust says three-quarters of the Welsh coastline it owns could be badly affected over the next century.

''The BBC/National Trust are conducting a study into coastal erosion especially in Wales, which appears to be one of the most effected areas. They have a short questionnaire and also ask for photographic evidence.
This should pave the way for some forward thinking remedial action from Government or at least make them aware of the massive and expensive problem''.

Sue says: "There are a number of roads that end abruptly like this between Spurn and Bridlington. I walk on the east coast most weekends and the boulder clay cliffs are currently breaking up faster than I've ever seen in the last three or four years".
