Monmouth Beach has been subject to a number of substantial landslides in the last two weeks with the beach strewn with mud and debris. The Coastguard IRT walked the mile to Seven Rock Point and located two persons matching the descriptions. There were fossiling. The Coastguard ensured tha they understood the tides and the risks associated with the beach and returned. The Coastguard have recorded this call as a ‘false alarm with good intent’.
