EYEWITNESS: "Cliff could come down at any time"

A Dorset man who witnessed yesterday's landslide in Dorset that killed 22-year-old Derbyshire Charlotte Blackman says the 'cliffs could come down at any time'.

Leonard Muggeridge knows just how notorious the Jurassic coastline is for landslides.

"A beautiful day , then at about half past twelve a sound like thunder, and before you knew it a lump of cliff had come down.

"We saw the debris etc, that cleared within about 20 minutes then two people were up climbing over the rocks, I assume looking for fossils.

"Locals will always tell people to be careful of the cliffs, even if you're fishing because there's always a chance that part of the cliffs could come down."
