Sudden landslide filmed by walker

Dramatic footage captured by a walker last week demonstrates the unstable condition of cliffs at Sidmouth’s east beach.

Martyn Goldsworthy, of Newton Poppleford, was out for a late afternoon stroll with his wife on Thursday (January 14) when he noticed a few rocks falling down and said he couldn’t believe the ‘amazing’ sight of what happened next.

“I got the video camera out and then it all started to descend,” said Martyn.

“It’s quite amazing. It would have been quite scary if you were underneath but it’s cordoned off and most people do comply.

“It was very noisy and quite a shock.”
