The coastal path above West Bay has re-opened a month after a major cliff fall.

Part of the South West Coastal path collapsed onto the beach at the end of June, with thousands of tonnes of rubble falling down to sea-level.

Dorset County Council has created a new path through the golf course. They're urging walkers to be extra careful.

“Landslides and rock falls can, and do, happen at any time. The Jurassic Coast is a wonderful place to visit, but it’s important to use common sense and always pay attention to warning signs and safety messages.”

– Cllr Daryl Turner
