Hundreds of tons of soil plummeted to the ground in the latest cliff fall in Sidmouth.
It is believed the fall happened sometime over night between Tuesday and Wednesday.
Resident John Austin contacted the Herald after he took a picture of the fresh soil which has landed at the foot of the cliff on East Beach, leaving a shed precariously close to the edge.
The 75-year-old Sidmouthian said: “We have been watching the cliffs for years and normally go down to town to do our shopping and walk across to the seafront.
“I don’t think it was there yesterday.”
