Large Rockfall Tumbles Down Cliffs Made Famous by UK Detective Drama

A beach camera captured a major rockfall at the cliffs near West Bay, England, on January 18, after a period of heavy rain made them unstable, according to Dorset Council.

The camera, owned by the UK Environment Agency, filmed the moment a large chunk of the East Beach cliffs fell onto the beach below.

The cliffs where the collapse occurred have been made famous by UK detective drama Broadchurch.

Dorset Council told residents to keep away from the base of cliffs and to stay well away from the edge along the top. Credit: Environment Agency via Storyful
