A STRETCH of coast path near Lyme Regis has been closed following a landslip.

Nearly five miles of the South West Coast Parth between Axmouth and the Devon and Dorset border at Lyme Regis was closed due to ‘an active landslip’.

Devon County Council confirmed that the path was closed on Friday afternoon and will remain closed until further notice.

The council said it was liaising with Natural England to investigate what remedial works can be undertaken and whether an alternative route could be found.
