PEOPLE are being urged to stay away from a cliff following a large rockfall.

A large cliff fall at Burton Bradstock has occurred between Freshwater and Hive Beach.

It is not yet known when the rockfall occurred and anyone thinking of going to the beach today is being urged to stay away from the edge and base of the cliff as it is feared more rocks could fall.

The same beach has seen a number of rockfalls in recent years, with the last cliff fall in November.
