2012 Incident #34 24.07.12 1132UTC #2873

The whole Coastguard team was tasked to assist our colleagues in the Police, Fire Service, RNLI, land and air ambulance and other specialist rescue teams with the rescue of a 22 year old woman trapped in a landslide under 400 tons of rock. The woman had been walking along the beach with her family underneath the cliff at Burton Bradstock when 2 landslides occurred within 20 minutes. Dorset Police confirmed body of the Charlotte Blackman from Derbyshire was located at 2140 and the search operation was been stood down.

The coastguard team would extend our sympathy and our condolences to family and friends at this very difficult time.
