A "substantial cliff collapse" on the South Devon coastline has closed the coast path.

Kingsbridge Police said the cliff collapsed between Bantham Beach and Thurlestone Golf Course on Sunday.

The landslide followed a warning about sightseers being put in danger by standing near the unstable cliff.

Police said the stretch of coast path is closed for the foreseeable future until safety measures have been put in place.
