Cliff fall sparks warning to lockdown walkers in Cornwall

A warning has gone out to lockdown walkers in Cornwall about a cliff fall on the north coast.

The Carbis Bay Crew, a group of cavers, mine explorers, divers and climbers in the Duchy, have posted a message on Facebook.

The team says that the cliffs south of Porthtowan are "on the move" and rubble has taken out the route to the Wheal Metal cliff workings.

Anyone who is out getting their daily dose of exercise in the area is urged to be aware.

Photos show rubble which has tumbled onto the beach below.

"Heads up, its been noticed whilst on "exercise walk" that the cliffs south of Porthtown are on the move, no surprise there !!

"Unfortunately , one of the falls has taken out the route to the Wheal Metal cliff workings.

"It looks like the workings are still intact but the "goat track" has been been swept away."
