People have been evacuated after part of a coastal road fell into the sea. 

The coastguard and Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service were called to Pakefield Holiday Park at about 9.40pm on Friday after a section of the road in front of the clifftop caravans collapsed onto the beach below. 

A spokesman for HM Coastguard Lowestoft said some caravans are now "dangerously" close to the cliff edge and several people have been evacuated. 

A cordon has been put in place on the coastal steps to stop people from going onto the seafront. 

The spokesman added: "The beach at the bottom of the steps at Arbor Lane has now mostly washed away.

"There is now a drop onto what’s left of the beach."

It comes after the three remaining clifftop properties in Pakefield were knocked down on Saturday, November 18. 

One of the dwellings - which were deemed unsafe last year due to coastal erosion - was owned by sisters Jacky Campling and Nicola Taggart.

Ms Campling, 66, attended the demolition over the weekend and watched as two diggers tore down her chalet.

People are being asked to avoid the area and not to use the steps at Arbor Lane as the beach is now a "dangerous" place to be.
