STAY away from the edge!

Birling Gap Coastguard has provided an update this afternoon on a cliff fall.

It says: “We are aware of a significant fresh cliff fall at the cliff end (western side) of the Seven Sisters.

Our advice remains the same regardless of where along the coast you may be.

Please stay away from cliff edges and bases as they are very unstable and are liable to collapse without warning.

These images were taken by our team following all of our safety procedures and relevant safety equipment.This fall seems to have collapsed from about half way up and not the full height.

This reinforces our point that you may not be able to see that you could be standing on a overhang and therefore are effectively standing on thin air.

In a coastal emergency dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.”
