A man was seen sitting on the cliff top at East Beach and throwing stones last night.

Local anglers spotted the man, who would 'repeatedly sit and stand on the edge throwing stones', and reported it to the Coastguard. 

Police were also made aware at 8:43pm.

But crews weren't able to locate the man after a thorough search of the cliff top.

A Bridport Police Spokesperson said:

"If you see people throwing stones from the cliff top onto the beach then call the police at the time as this behaviour is dangerous and could be potentially fatal should they hit someone."
