Call to walkers to take care as cliff in Bude collapses

It first appeared on Bude Banter, but Deborah Smith’s dramatic video of crumbling cliff at Lynstone Road in Bude on Monday swiftly hit other sites such as the BBC.

Filmed at around 4 pm, Mrs Smith is heard gasping with shock as a large section of cliff fell away. The wet weather has made the cliffs crumbly. Video used with permission from Deborah Smith.

Combined with coastal erosion, weathered cliffs are liable to fall. To all walkers, rock climbers and dog owners, the word is: be wary of cliff walks at this time except on designated paths, and please keep dogs on leads.
