Search crews have discovered the body of a woman following a landslide at a Dorset beach. The discovery was made at about 9.40pm on Tuesday.
Police believe the woman to be a 22-year-old reported missing at the beach earlier in the day.
It thought the missing woman was on the beach with her family and scores of other revellers who were enjoying the hottest day of the year so far.
Emergency services believe the heavy rain over the last few weeks combined with the recent heatwave caused the landslip.
The spokesman added that police believed the incident to be a "tragic accident" and said the thoughts of the police force were with the victim's family at this "very difficult time".
Following news of the discovery of the woman's body, Dorset Police again advised members of the public to avoid beaches in the area with a cliff backdrops.
ITV News' West of England Correspondent Emily Morgan reports on the search operation:
The search operation used specialist equipment and sniffer dogs in a bid to locate the missing woman after eyewitnesses reported that someone had been under the rockfall.
Around 400 tonnes of rock - a large section of the cliff - is estimated to have fallen onto the beach.
Helicopter footage shows the size of the landslide which happened just a few hundred metres away from the Freshwater Beach holiday park.
Leonard Muggeridge was fishing on a boat off the coast and witnessed both landslides. He said it is common local knowledge that the cliffs all along the Jurassic Coast are unstable.
There have been a number of landslides on the Dorset coast in recent days following heavy rainfall followed by a hot and dry period. Coast paths between Lyme Regis & West Bexington have been closed as a precaution.
The incident comes two weeks after Somerset couple Rosemary Snell, 67, and Michael Rolfe, 72, were killed in a landslide at the Beaminster Tunnel just nine miles away.
