Person trapped under rocks after Dorset landslide

A person has been trapped on a beach after a landslip of hundreds of tonnes of rocks near a Dorset holiday park, sparking a major search effort.

Helicopters are being used to search the area around Freshwater Beach Holiday Park, near Bridport.

It is feared more people could be trapped at the scene, a Dorset fire service spokesman said.

The service is helping to search the 10m-high pile of rocks following the landslip at about 12:30 BST.
