Dorset cliff landslide: Body found in hunt for woman

Rescuers searching for a 22-year-old woman who was buried by a landslide on a beach in Dorset have found a body.

The rocks came down on Tuesday afternoon at Hive Beach near Freshwater Beach Holiday Park at Bridport.

The beach forms part of the historic Jurassic Coast from Swanage in Dorset to Exmouth in Devon.

Sections of the cliff have been crumbling into the sea for years.

The BBC's Louise Hubball reports.
