Archaeologists in Britain have uncovered the oldest human footprints to be found outside of Africa.

The 50 footprints, said to be up to one million years old, were revealed by coastal erosion.

The discovery in Happisburgh on the east coast of England could re-write history on how humans spread into northern Europe.
