A SECTION of the beach between Lyme Regis and Charmouth has been cordoned off to the public following a landslide

The beach below the notorious Black Ven cliff – part of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site known for its regular mudslides and fossils – was roped off by coastguards following the slip on Friday morning.

Lyme Regis coastguards were called to the scene at the end of the new sea wall in Lyme Regis at 10.10am on Friday, October 22.

On arrival, boulders were still falling and there were signs that a large amount of material and rocks had already fallen onto the beach.

With the slip still active and the tide still in, the coastguard temporarily fenced the beach off directly below the slip.

With the recent wet and stormy weather, coastguards continue to ask people to remain vigilant and heed warnings to stay away from the cliffs and mudslides this half term.
