Jurassic Coast has biggest landslide ‘in 60 years’ as beach buried in rubble

Metro   14 April 2021   UK   Jurassic Coast  

A major landslide has seen 4,000 tonnes of rock plunge down onto a beach on the Jurassic Coast. Rubble has completely blocked a section of the beach after the 430ft sandstone cliff gave way on Monday night causing boulders the size of cars to plummet near Seatown in Dorset.

Rangers spent much of yesterday assessing the damage and Dorset Council is warning people to stay away. However, the prospect of finding fossils has led to some clambering over the rocks to get a better look, even though more of the cliff is at risk of ‘crashing down’.
