The Coastguard IRT, Initial Response team, was tasked to investigate a cliff fall / landslip, 400 metres to the east of Charmouth. The slip had happened the evening before but access to the area was prevented due the high ‘spring’ tide. No one had been reported in the vicinity of the fall and no one reported missing. However, the ‘fall’ was investigated to ‘double check and then the details passed to the relaxant authorities and landowners. Members of the public are reminded to stay vigilant heed any warning signs and stay away from the base of the cliffs.
