The BBC says:

The public is being consulted on plans to open up the whole of the English coastline to walkers.

The government proposal would allow access to about 30% of land currently out of bounds.

Ramblers have welcomed the move but some landowners are concerned they will receive no compensation and have little say in how the path is created.

There is already a right of access to Scotland's coast and the creation of a coastal path in Wales is under way.

More theft by the State on behalf of the urban elite at the expense of the rural elite.
