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.
