People visiting Exmouth’s beach have been warned to stay away from the edge of the cliffs after a landslide on Monday (July 11).
Exmouth RNLI lifeboat operations manager Kevin Riley was walking his dog on the beach between Rodney Bay and Orcombe Point when he witnessed part of the cliff falling away.
He notified the coastguard immediately.
“It was just after 7pm and I was walking the dog from Exmouth to Sandy Bay, said Kevin.
“Some 500 metres coming west, the cliff just decided to go.
“It was a landslide – the cliffs looked a bit unstable.
“People just need to be aware to stay away from the edge of the cliffs.”
