Dorset Landslide: Coastguard Urges Caution

Cliff walkers in Dorset have been urged to take extra caution after a big landslide close to the popular Durdle Door beach.

It is not yet known whether anyone was injured or killed by the landslide at St Oswald's Bay, which is believed to have occurred overnight, a coastguard told Sky News.

Nick Lonsdale, Duty Watch Manager at MRCC Portland, said: "The landslide was first reported to us at 8am this morning. To our knowledge, no one was harmed by it, but it is too early to speculate.
