Coastal Killers 3

Perhaps it's the sea air or too much sun.

But despite the jollity associated with sandcastles and ice creams, breezy promenade walks and donkey rides, many British seaside towns have a dubious reputation for hosting the most remarkable crimes.

Some of the most strange and terrifying murders ever recorded in British criminal history have taken place at the famous seaside resorts.

These include the grand hotels playing host to some of the deadliest murderers imaginable, and the seafronts doubling as stalking grounds for the serial killers.

Every summer, thousands of holidaymakers flock to the British seaside to enjoy the warm weather, pebble beaches and amusement arcades.

But there's a dark side to the British seaside, a sinister underbelly where sins are washed away by the tide.

The quaint and idealistic seafront is also stalked by killers who, like the sea itself, have no respect for human life.

This new season of Coastal Killers takes you on a journey to the cliff's edge, where the land meets the sea, and where life meets death.

At first glance, these seaside towns are all fun fairs, candy floss and breezy promenades.

Equally, when the carousel stops turning and the lights along the shorefront go out, there emerges from the darkness an underworld of murder and mayhem.
