The Environment Agency would like to inform residents that the Marram grass on the beach in Sutton on Sea and Trusthorpe has been planted there to help protect the sea defences.

There has been talk amongst residents that people planned to remove the grass.

A spokesman for the EA said: “We have not heard of any plans to damage the marram grass, but we would urge people not to do so.

“The grass helps to stabilise the sand dunes with its fibrous mat of roots.”
