Torbay beach cliff fall danger

First published in Devon

The public are being warned about an "imminent" major rock fall at Oddicombe beach.

Torbay Council has told people to stay away from the area.

The warning follows a survey of the cliffs in South Devon carried out by a geologist.

A council spokesman said: "The location giving him most concern is the high cliffs behind the closed section of Oddicombe Beach, Torquay and it is his opinion that a major rock fall is imminent in this area.

"As a result we would once again strongly urge members of the public to adhere to the 'beach closed' warning signs that are in place for their safety."
