Landslide wrecks beach hut in Dumpton Gap, UK

A LANDSLIDE at Dumpton Gap has ruined a beach hut.

Another beach hut was also moved towards the beach as grassland fell from the cliff dislodging the two huts.

The landslide comes after more than two inches of rain fell from 4pm on Wednesday until midnight.

Peter Overton, from Thanet Coastguard, said: “We have advised people to be mindful about it. There have been several falls at Dumpton in the past few months. We have not had an opportunity yet to assess the quantity of the cliffall and will be out later today or tomorrow to do this. People should be aware of cliffall there and keep away from the base of the cliff.
