If you'd seen the precarious position of some the chalets that were falling over, they were a real danger. And there was a real danger of them falling on to some of the other chalets as well and causing further damage. I think it's fair to say there is no way those chalets could be salvaged.
Two more chalets will be demolished on the Jurassic coast today as cliffs continue to move.
Five holiday homes were damaged last week in a series of landslips to the west of Lyme Regis. Now there is concern for six others. The damaged chalets and access road to Monmouth Beach have been cordoned off.
Holiday homes could be destroyed by landslip: full report
A row of holiday homes west of Lyme Regis are at risk of being destroyed. Last night, what's been described as a 'major landslip' occured above Monmouth Beach, damaging some of the chalets, and its feared another may happen at any time.
The recent heavy rain is being blamed for the slip, which is the latest of many to hit that stretch of the Jurassic Coast. It is just 12 miles from Burton Bradstock where a 22 year old woman died in July last year. Richard Lawrence reports.
The road to Monmouth Beach in Lyme Regis had been closed for safety reasons. There are fears further landslides could even knock chalets down to the road. Several are now perched precariously. Yesterday engineers disconnected their electricity after power lines came down.
Surveyors are expected to visit the area but it's thought little can be done until the cliffs become more stable.
