Poldark beach landslide may mean coast path has to be moved at Dollar Cove at Gunwalloe on the Lizard

This dramatic image captures the scale of a large landslip in Cornwall at a beach regularly used to film Poldark.

The National Trust, which owns the coastline, has said it will look at moving the Cornwall coastal footpath away from the new cliff edge.

A large section of soil and rocks slid down onto the beach at Dollar Cove near to the popular beach of Church Cove at Gunwalloe near Helston.

The land is owned by the National Trust and regularly used for the filming of Poldark. The rocky beach was used to film the shipwreck and smugglers scenes in the BBC drama.

High tides caused the cliff face to collapse overnight on Thursday (November 30). It is not believed anyone was near the beach at the time.
