CCTV footage has captured the moment a cliff collapsed on one of the region's most popular beaches.
Last night, more than 60 feet of cliff face collapsed onto Bournemouth seafront between Bournemouth Pier and Boscombe Pier, just yards from the East Cliff lift.
The debris blocked the promenade - and emergency crews used heatseeking cameras to make sure no-one was trapped.
Today the National Trust warned that the recent rain and gale force - mean some areas have suffered years of erosion in just a few weeks.
