UK: Residents near fast-eroding shoreline could become 'climate refugees'
Coastal residents in Norfolk are at risk of becoming 'climate refugees' due to erosion, rising sea levels and climate change, it has been claimed.
It follows the release of a report by the House of Commons select committee on environment, food and rural affairs which called on the government to explain how floods and coastal erosion would be managed in the future.
The report focused on the village of Happisburgh, which has one of the fastest stretches of eroding coastline in Britain.
It quotes Malcolm Kerby of the local residents' Coastal Concern Action Group (CCAG).
