There's been a major landslide near Durdle Door.

Coastal walkers are being urged to stay well clear of the stretch of coastline.

Tonnes of rock and rubble crashed down from the cliff just east of Durdle Door at St Oswald's Bay overnight (Monday 29th April)

Portland Coastguard has told us part of the coastal path has been devastated and is completely impassable!

The path has been sealed off by the County Council and warning signs are being put in place.

It's the 4th major landslip to happen off the Dorset coast this year, including a number of smaller ones earlier this month.

Nick Longsdale, Duty Watch Manager at Portland Coastguard, says it's important people stay well away from the edge of the cliff.
