There are further warnings out to coastal walkers in Dorset after an increased risk of landslips.

It's after a period of heavy rain the last few weeks.

Rock falls, quicksand, mudflows are all possible and Dorset County Council are urging people to be extra careful along beaches and near cliff edges.

A number of warning signs are in place up and down the coast.

Following landslips and subsidence, the South West Coast Path has been closed between Kimmeridge and Chapman's Pool, and above the West Weares near Tout Quarry on Portland. People are also advised to stay away from North Beach at Swanage, which has seen substantial cliff falls, and are strongly advised to take heed of any warning signs - they are there for people's safety.

Sally King, Jurassic Coast visitor manager, said:

"People are encouraged to continue to enjoy our beautiful coastal landscape. But we would urge them to use their common sense and avoid potential hazards, even if they are familiar with the area."

In an emergency situation, please call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
