857-95438 - Smashed concrete sea defenses at Ulrome near Skipsea on Yorkshires East Coast, UK. The sea has eroded past the barriers and left them stranded further down the beach. The coast is composed of soft boulder clays, very vulnerable to coastal erosion. This section of coast has been eroding since Roman times, with many villages having disappeared into the sea, and is the fastest eroding coast in Europe. Climate change is speeding up the erosion, with sea level rise, increased stormy weather and increased heavy rainfall events, all playing their part.
