The BBC National News has carried a report about the impact of coastal change. The report included dramatic images of falling cliffs, mountainous waves and largescale erosion.
I've looked for the National Trust document which is likely to be the source of the story, or at least one of the sources. I've added an extract below and a link to the full document on the National Trust web site.
The beach Formby Sands on the Sefton Coast in Lancashire has been eroding at a rate of three to four metres every year for the last 100 years. Severe storms can take twelve to fifteen metres from the front of the dunes, most recently in 2002.
Over the next 100 years the Sands may recede more than 400 metres. Our primary objective is to allow the dunes to move back naturally.
In order to continue to maintain it as an important recreational site attracting some 350,000 visitors each year, the Trust is planning to re-route the Sefton Coastal Path and relocate the car park
