With sunny weather expected to continue through this week, The Herald is repeating warnings from East Devon District Council about the risk of cliff falls.
A council spokesman said: "East Devon's cliffs are a key part of the scenery that attracts visitors to the area, however the cliffs pose a very real danger and caution must be exercised when visiting them.
