– John Wright, Deputy Town Clerk
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.
Police are warning people who own chalets on Monmouth Beach in Lyme Regis not to visit them under any circumstances because of the risk from landslips. Several are having to be demolished.
