A pleasant afternoon walk along a cove in Dorset ended in spectacular scenes on February 18, as https://newswire.storyful.com/storylines/*/302222?search_term=uk coastal erosion caused a portion of the cliffs to collapse. Richard Mower told Storyful that when he and his wife first arrived around 1:30 pm, people were still walking along the beach, where there were signs indicating a potential https://www.instagram.com/dorsetayurveda/3305577087559048570/ "Active Cliff Fall" . "By around 2:30 pm it was obvious that the cliff was starting to give way as cracks were appearing," he said. In the video, Mower can be heard saying, "Luckily I was videoing anyway" as the cliff begins to crumble. Cliff slides are common in the area, according to https://www.bournemouthecho.co.uk/news/24127322.lulworth-cove-landslip-dorset-beach-caught-camera/ local media.
