Section of White Cliffs of Dover Collapses Into the Sea

A man fishing near Samphire Hoe captured a video of a section of the White Cliffs of Dover collapsing into the sea on February 3.

Dennis McIntyre took the video and shared the footage on Facebook. He stated he saw pieces of debris and dust falling when he started recording, then he heard cracking sounds like an explosion as the collapsed pieces of chalk and flint hit the water.

Councillor Steve Albon from the Thanet District Council urged the public, “Please use common sense and caution – stay away from the edge and base of cliffs at all times and pay attention to any warning signs and safety messages.” Credit: Dennis McIntyre via Storyful
