The coastal community of Walcott in Norfolk wasn’t just hit by last week’s floods: it was knocked for six.
The tidal surge brought crashing waves that devastated a caravan and chalet park situated on the seafront. It smashed down house walls, ripping out fences and tossing caravans about like toys.
For the Woods family, who live right on the seafront, things couldn’t have gone more badly. Their static home was completely destroyed – literally torn apart – by the rising water, and all their ruined belongings scattered throughout a nearby field.
