Pirate FM has learnt there have been more cliff falls on the south-west coast path in three months than in the last five years put together.

Since November, parts have tumbled into the sea from Cornwall to Dorset 21 times.

It is being blamed on the winter storms.

Now walkers are being warned to plan their routes in advance.

Dave Walker, from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, said: "One of the peculiar things about landslips is that you may not always recognise it happen as you're there, so you really need to take heed of the warning signs that are there and check ahead, you know, check for information.

"There are simple things like when you read an Ordnance Survey map, being sure about whether you're on the route or whether you're on a boundary area, can be quite important in terms of knowing where you are. Check if there's any diversions and seriously follow them."
