NEW landslides have forced the closure of coast paths in Weymouth.

Access routes to the beach at Castle Cove and another in the Bincleaves area have been blocked for public safety reasons.

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council and Dorset County Council will be working together to try to maintain an access route to Castle Cove Beach.

The cliff adjacent to the flight of steps down to the beach has failed and cracks are opening up across the path’s surface.

During the coming weeks the condition of the path and steps down to the beach will be monitored.

Following a cliff fall the footpath from Bincleaves  has also been closed.
