    DORSET councils have issued safety advice concerning landslides.
    A spokesman said: "Landslides and rock falls are more likely to happen after very heavy rainfall or storms
    I am really glad that the councils have issued this safety advice because I never realised this (:o))

    Council is quoted as saying use 'common sense'. Do they not realise that common sense is a swear word, and does not apply to the English language any more

    Had a stroll down to Hive Beach this afternoon and sure enough, a man and a woman were climbing all over the rockfall and only left when they realised they were about to be cut off by the tide. What a pity, I was watching and waiting for the overhang to fall so I could shout "Morons"
