Hundreds of tons of dirt and rubble crashed onto East Beach in the fifth cliff fall to take place in just over a week.
Eye witnesses watched as more soil plummeted to the ground yesterday (Monday) at about 11am.
It came days after the Herald reported a cliff top resident’s concerns about the town being mere metres away from disaster.
Vicki Lomas, of Ottery St Mary, who witnessed the latest fall with her husband Shane, said: “We heard a rumble then turned around to see it. It was amazing to watch. It took our breath away.
“My husband, Shane was lucky enough to catch some pictures in time.
