Boulders were imported from Norway and placed in front of the cliff face > LinkExternal link in an attempt to control the erosion, but it continues, with its latest victim being the last remaining house at the end of Beach Road, which was so badly undermined by the recent storm surge on 5 December 2013, said to have been the worst in 60 years, that it is barely hanging on.
