People are being urged to stay away from potentially dangerous cliffs at Bawdsey after children were seen playing on the beach below over the weekend.
Tonnes of sand and rock fall from Bawdsey Cliffs every single day due to erosion, with landowner PGL installing barriers and placing signs warning people of the danger.
Several fresh cliff falls were spotted on the beach over the weekend.
Aldeburgh Coastguard Rescue Team had previously expressed concern after families were seen beneath the cliffs in May.
James Mallinder, East Suffolk Council’s cabinet member for the environment, urged visitors to adhere to the safety guidance that is on display at the cliffs.
