Arctic coastlines are crumbling away and retreating at the rate of up to 30 metres a year due to the effects of climate change, it was claimed today.

The rapid rate of coastal erosion poses a major threat to local communities and ecosystems, according to a new report by more than 30 scientists from ten countries.

Two-thirds of Arctic coasts consist of frozen soil - or permafrost - rather than rock, and are highly sensitive to erosion by wind and waves.
