Memories of the 1953 North Sea Surge

An Anglia TV film recalling the great North Sea Surge of January 1953 can be seen by visiting the East Anglian Film Archive.

Pictures of the damage and interviews with those recalling the event bring to our attention that such devastation could soon come again, perhaps even this winter. The cuts in the sea defence budget with much of the coastline no longer defended, worsening weather, escalating sea rise, East Anglian sinkage and the ongoing dredging of some 9 million tonnes per year off the coastline increases the probability of an even more serious flood year by year.
