UK stretch zone: Large section of the cliffs of Dover has collapsed into the sea

A large section of Dover's famous white cliffs has broken away and crashed into the Channel, according to the coastguard.

Tonnes of rock collapsed into the sea between Langdon Cliffs and South Foreland Lighthouse.

Dover Coastguard said no-one was injured during the "substantial" rockfall, which happened in an area know locally as Crab Bay.

The National Trust has put up warning signs to alert walkers.

A full survey is expected to be carried out to determine the amount and length of cliff that collapsed on Friday.


'Crumble away'

A spokesman for Dover Coastguard said: "We can see the start of it from where we are based but then it goes round the corner.

"It appears that it crumbled from the top at high water so there was no-one down below at the time. It was quite a substantial fall.

"No-one was injured but it does serve as a reminder that if people are walking along the cliff-top or underneath, that the cliff can crumble away.

Wow! - Hopefully the land slide will wake some people up and perhaps even lead them here with the post! Thanks for sharing, Sevan!

they said it was due to rain and freezing temperatures that the slide occured.  What they forgot to mention was that the southern part of the UK is in a severe drought, No rain! and that freezing temperatures are no longer a factor, having been brought up and lived in the UK March is a month where there is usually no snow, sometimes rain, not freezing on the South Coast.  Anything but the truth.

The funny thing is, they're trying to blame the freezing conditions this time, desperately.

Did it rain there recently?  The cover up usually blames stuff like this on any amont of rain, no matter how small or absurd.
