Landslip closes five-mile section of Devon/Dorset coast path

A section of coast path on the Devon/Dorset border has been closed after being damaged by a landslip.

The five-mile (7.6km) section of path near Axmouth and Lyme Regis, closed on Friday, would remain shut until further notice, Devon County Council said.

Warning notices have been put in place.

The council said it was liaising with land manager Natural England about possible solutions, including remedial works to reopen the section or creating an alternative route.
