MORE WARNINGS have been issued for people to use 'common sense and caution' in the aftermath of a rock fall at a Jurassic Coast beach.

Dorset Council rangers have been carrying out checks on the situation at Hive Beach in Burton Bradstock following last week’s rockfall.

As of yet there has been no change in the situation, meaning that the cliff and the fallen rocks on the beach are still unstable.

Warnings have now been placed along the beach and the coastal path remains closed, as it has for some time due to potential cliff instability. The footpath has been rerouted inland through National Trust land to steer members of the public away from the cliff edge.

Residents are being urged to stay away from the area as a further fall or resettlement of the rocks now on the beach could happen at any time. The heavy rain that has battered the county along with the strong waves that have been crashing into base of the cliffs will like further destabilise the cliff.

A spokesman Dorset Council said: "The Jurassic Coast is a wonderful place to visit, but it's important to use common sense and caution – stay away from the edge and base of cliffs and always pay attention to warning signs and safety messages."

Geologists have previously warned that the Jurassic Coast's cliffs 'remain totally unpredictable.'

This landslip is the third major cliff fall event on this stretch of coast since the summer.

The first of which came in August when tonnes of rock came crashing down onto the coast between Hive Beach and Freshwater Beach before a large section of cliff near West Bay dramatically collapsed in November.
