People are being warned to be careful walking near cliffs in East Devon. It follows the death of a woman in West Dorset yesterday and several recent cliff falls along the East Devon coastline.
People need to pay attention to the signs which are in place, not access beaches where barriers have been placed and avoid getting close to the cliffs. The large amounts of rain we have had over the last three months have destabilised a number of the cliff faces and it can be very difficult to predict when or where the next fall will occur.
Work is ongoing in Devon to make safe landslip sites at Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Seaton and Axmouth Harbour.
Emotional tributes have been paid to 22-year-old Charlotte Blackman described as a ‘lively, fun-loving woman’.
Emergency workers searching for a young woman reported missing following a landslide at a beach in Dorset have discovered a body.
A report of a person trapped in a landslip near a Dorset holiday park has this afternoon sparked a major operation by emergency services.
