WALKERS were left feeling nervous after seeing a group of people standing close to a cliff edge.

The group were spotted close to the edge at Seaford Head earlier this afternoon, despite recent warnings from East Sussex County Council to stay clear.

An eyewitness said groups of walkers standing by the railings at Splash Point were “seemingly very nervous” watching the group.

“From that far away, they looked like a couple of young men joined by others and they were up near the edge for around 15 minutes,” the eyewitness told The Argus.

“They appeared to be interested in looking down at the cliffs and the views.

“What concerns me is that fools like them will encourage the powers that be to fence off the cliffs if someone does fall.”

It comes just months after a large rock fall between Seaford Head and Hope Gap, creating a recess of around 15 to 18 feet.

The RNLI was approached for comment.
