IT’S a hot Sunday and here’s a renewed message today from Birling Gap Coastguard: “Please do not stand near cliff edges and bases.
We regularly share photos of some of the weaker sections of cliff.
This one was taken by one of the team near to the Belle Tout Lighthouse which seems to be a popular spot for people to stand on the edge for a view or photo.
Our message is please don’t.
You could be standing on a section like this and be totally unaware.
These sections could give way any moment.
In a coastal emergency dial 999 and ask for the coastguard.”
