Beaches along the Jurassic Coast in Dorset have reopened.

They were closed after a 22-year-old woman died in a landslide in Burton Bradstock on Tuesday. Charlotte Blackman was crushed by 400 tonnes of rock.

Dorset County Council says the stretch between the Freshwater Holiday Park and Hive beach remains closed until further safety assessments have been carried out.
