Filmed from the air, this stunning report shows the aftermath of last week's astonishing cliff fall in Portland, Dorset. Geologists are warning that more cliffs could fall apart in the next week.
This dramatic footage shows the moment a huge cliff face suddenly collapsed in Dorset onto a rocky shore below.
Fisherman Sam Haskins was walking on a coastal footpath near Westcliff, on Portland, when he captured the stunning collapse.
At first only a few small chunks fall away from the cliff, but then a giant section tumbles down the hillside.
He said: "We couldn't believe what we were seeing and hearing as the noise of many tons of stone and debris crashing down was awesome but also terrifying."
Dorset County Council has warned people to stay away from the area in case of repeat incidents, while the Maritime and Coastguard Agency tweeted a link to the video with the message: "Ever wondered why we say to stay away from cliff edges?"
