A landslide has buried a newly repaired set of steps to a Dorset beach.

The cliff fall, reported today, is said to have caused a recently refurbished flight of steps to the eastern side of Lulworth Cove to collapse.

The eastern side of Lulworth beach now has no official route of access.

The rangers had received help from volunteers over the winter to replace the steps down to Durdle Door, after they were in a state of disrepair.

They had announced work on those steps had been completed the day prior to the landslide in the same area on social media.

According to countryside rangers team the Lulworth Rangers, sodden clay has now covered and damaged the newly built steps and taken away the original stone steps from above.

Repair work must now be carried out.

This landslide comes after a large cliff fall at Lulworth Cove in February.

The rangers say that Peplar’s Point and the land owned by the Ministry of Defence, including Fossil Forest, when open, is still possible to access via the path over Bindon Hill without having to descend onto the beach.
