The scene was captured by professional photographer Chris Taylor, who gave 75pc of sales proceeds to the cause.

Mr Taylor, 41, from Sheringham, said orders came from as far afield as California, where a woman who used to live in Leicester.

“She wanted the picture for memories of happy holidays spent in Sheringham, but also to help the appeal,” he said.

It was his most successful single picture in terms of sales, ahead of a shot of a damaged seal which was linked to shark attack rumours and sold well to the news industry.

The lifeboatman who is used to the power of the sea, said the shot was taken early on the morning after the main surge when the sea was still wild, and meant he had to leap up the cliff banks to avoid waves hitting the promenade - which is still partly fenced off at the worst affected areas.

He sold about 80 of the images, and was surprised by the popularity of the shot.

But he added: “It is nice to give something back to help people who have lost everything.”
