Large Crack Appears At Beachy Head
Here is the statement from Eastbourne Borough Council who own the stretch of coastline
Eastbourne Borough Council Statement
Being the gateway to the South Downs National Park we have some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country, but as with all natural or wild environments it is important to take care.
Members of the public should always stay a safe distance away from the cliff edge at Beachy Head and away from the cliff face when walking and relaxing on the beach beneath.
The cliff edge is prone to erosion and fissures in the chalk, such as the one pictured, are very common.
People enjoying the downland must use their common sense and adhere to the number of warning signs adjacent to footpaths in the area.
