A COASTAL path closed has been closed after crack appeared on the cliff.

The path between West Bay and Freshwater Holiday Park has been closed after a crack appeared on the path itself.

It follows heavy rainfall in west Dorset for most of the day on Sunday, February 26.

Dorset Council announced the route has now been closed to the public.

A spokesperson for Dorset Council said: "We're seeing a lot of movement in the cliffs on our coastline at the moment. Stay safe by taking notice of warning signs and don't go too close to the edges and bases of cliffs."
