Fresh appeals for cliff collapse visitors to stay away

A series of cliff collapses at Birling Gap in East Sussex has prompted a warning to visitors to keep away from the edge.

More tourists are expected this weekend because of the warm weather and the hope of seeing further erosion.

On Tuesday, the high tide caused a severe fall in the cliffs after a 30ft crack appeared, with a row of cottages ending up closer to the edge.

The cliffs have suffered seven years' worth of erosion, since January.

As Andrea Thomas's report from earlier this week shows, it's a magnet for sightseers.
