There are renewed calls today for people not to behave recklessly after pictures of a man sitting on the cliff edge at Beachy Head in Sussex were released

This section of coastline has seen erosion take place over the past year. Dover Coastguard say the cliff edge is still dangerous - and they're warning the public to keep well away.

Cliff falls close coastal footpaths

Cliff falls have forced the closure of coastal footpaths in Dorset.

The access path to the beach at Castle Cove and Bincleaves area have been closed for public safety reasons.

The cliff adjacent to the flight of steps down to the beach has failed and cracks are opening up across the path’s surface.

During the coming weeks the condition of the path and steps down to the beach will be monitored.
