At St Mary's Church in Whitby, North Yorkshire, which inspired Bram Stoker when writing his classic novel Dracula, graves are in danger of crumbling down the cliffside after constant landslips in recent weeks. The historic graveyard has been closed for over a century, but human bones were discovered during a landslide last month.
