A couple of before and after photos here showing Oddicombe Beach up at Babbacombe (catch the 32 or 32T from the Strand, every 15 mins, 30 on Sunday).
The first was taken in April 2009 and the second was taken today. They show the extent of the rock fall that occurred a few days ago. Council officials put the total amount at 5000 tonnes. The council also said the cliff will continue to crumble away in it's own good time and there were no plans to do anything to try and stop it. The far end of the beach will remain cordoned off for the foreseeable future.
The cliff behind the buildings at the South end of the beach has been netted and is not expected to collapse at any moment. A decision will be taken next week as to when the South end of the beach can be opened. This is a popular beach in the summer, if you go there do the walk up to Babacombe Beach and back. Buy a return ticket on the cliff railway, only £1.75 a single is £1.50.
