We're being warned to steer clear of the cliffs at West Bay following the stormy weather.

Two weekends of yellow and amber weather warnings in Dorset have come and gone, but we're not in the clear yet.

Bridport Fire Station are warning us to stay away from the cliffs at West Bay, and say we should not walk above or below them.

A spokesperson for Bridport Fire Station said:

"The coast has taken quite a battering over the past few days making the cliffs particularly unstable. 

"We strongly recommend you DO NOT walk above or below the cliffs at Westbay. 

"Even at low tide you remain at risk of serious injury or death when walking along the beach should the cliff collapse."
