Dramatic amateur footage has emerged of the moment when rough seas took their toll on a cliff-face in Hastings on Britain’s southern shores.

After days of extremely wet and windy weather, the spectacular collapse of part of the East Sussex coast was captured on a mobile phone by local resident, Kevin Ice.

Many parts of Britain are braced for more storms and damage this weekend with severe weather alerts in place. Thousands of households remain flooded as a result of heavy downpours over the Christmas holidays.

Ireland too has been severely affected with the estimated cost of damage expected to run into millions of euros.

Counties Cork, Clare, Galway and Kerry are among the worst hit areas.
