Warning Issued After Cliff Falls in Newhaven and Surrounding Areas

Recent cliff falls highlight the dangers of coastal cliffs, prompting warnings to residents and visitors.

In light of recent cliff falls in Newhaven, Peacehaven, and Seaford, Lewes District Council is issuing an urgent warning to all residents and visitors: maintain a safe distance from cliff edges and bases to avoid potential dangers. The recent incidents have highlighted the inherent instability of the coastal cliffs, which can experience sudden and unpredictable collapses at any time of the year.

The council emphasises that these cliff falls are a natural occurrence and contribute to the ongoing evolution of the coastline. However, the safety of the public remains a paramount concern. The council is advising everyone to exercise extreme caution when near these areas, especially when accompanying children or pets.

In an effort to further ensure public safety, the council is reminding coastal visitors to stay informed about tidal movements. Checking tide times, which can be done at Sussex News Tide page is crucial for anyone planning to walk along the beaches. This precaution can prevent individuals from being caught in dangerous situations due to rising tides or cut off from exit paths.

The council’s message is clear: Safety should be the top priority for anyone near the cliffs. If anyone witnesses a person in danger on or near the cliffs, they should not hesitate to call 999 immediately and request the coastguard’s assistance.
