People have been warned to "take extra care" when walking along a popular coastal path.

East Suffolk Council and Coastal Partnership East has issued a warning following "recent erosion and cliff falls" in Corton, near Lowestoft.

Coastal Partnership East – which brings together the coastal management resources and expertise from North Norfolk District Council, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and East Suffolk Council – had appointed the Water Management Alliance (WMA) to carry out "repairs and maintenance work of coastal protection assets" last month.

It saw work along the coastal defences being carried out from February 8 for about three weeks.

But this week, after the bad recent weather and reports of erosion, in social media posts, the council and the Coastal Partnership East said: "Please take care!

"Due to recent erosion and cliff falls in Corton, the coastal path from the area roughly near St Bartholomew's Church to the rock defences at Bakers Score is now extremely dangerous in places.

"Please take extra care if walking in this area and avoid walking along the path close to the cliff edge."
