Sidford teen snaps this photo of the latest cliff fall in Sidmouth on Wednesday, April 19.

Sidmouth’s east beach was once again the focus of attention after another cliff fall on Wednesday morning.

Josh O’Connor was one of many passersby who witnessed the cloud of dust at 9.30am as he stood on the Esplanade.

The 19–year-old from Sidford said he turned around to see the cliff fall and took a photo capturing the aftermath.

Josh said: “I saw it [a cliff fall] last Easter and the thought of the dust was amazing the way it blew in the air, it attracted a lot of people to see it.”
