8:58am 9th August 2012

Beach goers who ignored safety warnings have had a lucky escape after a large rock fall from cliffs between Charmouth and Golden Cap.

Coastguard teams were called out around 6.30pm last night (Wednesday 8th August) by a boat out at sea that saw it happen.

Five people were accounted for and asked to leave the area.

A further family of four who refused to leave despite the danger were dealt with by Dorset Police.
