2012 Incident #44 08.08.12 1720UTC #3271

The whole Coastguard team was tasked to investigate a cliff fall / landslip, 400 metres to the east of Charmouth. 5 persons had been seen, by a local fisherman, in the vicinity of the fall. It was quickly established that everyone was accounted on the beach and the Coastguard helicopter was used to check the South West Coast path. A member of public objected to being asked to withdraw from the scene and the police had to intervene to secure the area.
