Rural East Devon Police said in a tweet: “Another large cliff fall this morning. Reminder to beach users not to walk on the beach East of Sidmouth due to unstable cliffs which could fall at any time.”
Emergency services were on the scene this morning including the police and the Coastguard.
Lee Holt, a holidaymaker who took some of the dramatic photos, described the incident to the Sidmouth Herald.
He said: “We started to walk along the promenade towards the cliffs. I spotted a small dust cloud on the beach, and then suddenly the cliff face gave way. We didn’t hear anything but just the sight was immense.
