These shocking photos show the extent of clifftop erosion at Skipsea on the Yorkshire coast

Skipsea's soft clay cliffs are the fastest-eroding coastline in northern Europe, and since last March 10 metres of land has vanished. Gardens, fences and walls regularly fall off the edge, and several roads are now so unsafe that they have been permanently closed. Meet the Skipsea residents living on the edgeIt's thought that 24 homes are at immediate risk, and East Riding Council has called for government funding to help those affected. These shocking images by Press Association photographer Owen Humphreys shows the extent of the erosion. On Green Lane, residents claim that around 3ft of the cliff vanishes every month, and they are now used to checking their garden fences every morning. Skipsea will not be the only settlement between Bridlington and Hull to have been lost to the sea - villages such as Out Newton, Dimlington, Monkwike and Ringborough disappeared long ago.

Holderness coast: Major cliff landslides 'every six years' Image copyright British Geological Survey Major landslides occur on the cliffs of East Yorkshire - some of the fastest eroding in Europe - every six to seven years, a study has concluded.

Holderness coast: Major cliff landslides 'every six years'

Geologists found some 100m (330ft) stretches of the Holderness coast were losing enough cliff to fill two-and-a-half Olympic swimming pools a year. The 18-year study was carried out by the British Geological Survey (BGS). Researchers said it could help to forecast how landslides would respond to climate change predictions. A team created the BGS's first "coastline landslide observatory" in Aldbrough in 2001, with laser scans, GPS and drone photography later used to generate 3D models of the cliffs. Six 20m (66ft) boreholes were drilled at differing distances away from the cliff to monitor groundwater pressure and physical movements, with weather data also collected offshore. Latest news and stories from Yorkshire Storm frequency and wave energy were also contributing factors.
