Family clears home at cliff site

BBC North Yorkshire | Family clears home at cliff site

Erosion affecting homes in YorkshireA second family has had to move belongings from their home which is teetering on the edge of a landslip at Cayton Bay in North Yorkshire.

Thousands of tonnes of earth have slipped away in front of a number of homes leaving them on a cliff edge.

Stories like this remind me of a haunting digital story made by Lyz Turner on the BBC Telling Lives project. It was one of our first workshops, held in Hornsea on the Yorkshire Coast some miles south of Cayton Bay. You can watch the film here:
