2011 Incident #11 14.04.11 0849UTC #1153

The Initial Response Team, the IRT, was tasked to investigate a major cliff fall on Monmouth Beach. Three large boulders, estimated at about 8 tons each, were positioned precariously on the ‘slip plane’ about 15 metres above the beach. There was also a large amount of smaller rocks and shale falling constantly to the beach. The area was checked visually to ensure that there were no obvious casualties. The area was then cordoned off & signed to highlight the imminent major risk of the rest of the cliff top collapsing. The three rocks fortunately came down during the course of the afternoon without causing any further concern. Members of the public are advised to stay well away for the cliffs.
