Massive cliff fall at St Margaret's
People are being warned to stay away from the edge of the cliffs
between Dover and Deal following a massive chalk fall.
Thousands of tonnes of chalk have crashed down into the sea,
taking a bench, which people used to sit on to admire the view,
A new fence is being erected along the cliff to keep people out
of danger, and warning signs have been posted in the area.
The latest fall is just north of St Margaret's Bay
and is one of the biggest in recent years. There was a smaller fall
at Langdon a few months ago.
The freezing winter weather and rain is thought to have been
partly responsible for the chalk breaking away and crashing down,
as well as natural erosion.
