These pictures shows the moments after another cliff fall on Sidmouth’s east beach, which have been described by one eyewitness as ‘the biggest one yet.’
The images taken today by Guy Russell and Rob Cox show a large dust cloud rising from the ground, shortly after 10.40am.
Guy posted his picture to Facebook warning beach goers to be careful while on the seafront and to pay attention to warning signs.
Fellow eyewitness Claire Lewis said the crash sounded like a ‘low roar of a jet engine’ when the cliff crumbled onto the ground.
She said: “I first heard the roar and turned to look behind us to see earth pouring to the ground, it seemed to last for ages, it sounded like the low roar of a jet engine.
