George Adams sent in pictures and a video of the moments following the collapse, that took place on Monday (April 13) at about 4.30pm.

Speaking to the Herald, Mr Adams said: “I was walking my dog along the seafront when I looked over and saw a huge mass falling down onto the beach and into the sea.

“Then shortly after a fairly large dust cloud blew over all along the seafront.

“People started to gather and watch as it was happening.
