Ted and Annie Woods are concerned about the watercourse through a pond behind their bungalow and the worry keeps Ted awake at night. Annie says they had hoped this was their final home. A man representing North Norfolk District Council talks about plans to stabilise the area. A woman says residents are terrified. Scenes of the landslip and the area where the road has fallen away.
