Cliff collapse at Barton on Sea

Yesterday evening (9 May 2017) a significant land slide happened at the cliff top at Barton on Sea (see image for location information).

Our coastal team have closed the area and have put up warning signs at access points and at the beach below.  

"The warning now from our coastal scientists, who have assessed the cliff there last night and this morning, is that the area is highly likely to see more significant movement and another landslip.   We strongly advise that the area of the cliff top and the beach below should not be accessed by the public."  

It will remain closed until the cliff stabilises.
