A huge landslip in Bournemouth has damaged a cliff lift and crushed a toilet block. A stretch of the cliff in East Cliff fell away at 05:00 BST taking with it an array of fencing and benches. Luke Watkins, assistant senior ranger for Bournemouth Borough Council, said: 'It's one of the largest slips I've seen.' No-one was injured but the area has been cordoned off by the authority. More movement is expected at the site over the next two days. [From Mark Bartlett]

Bournemouth Cliff Lifts: Eastcliff is the oldest of Bournemouth's three cliff railways, but only by three months, having opened in April 1908. It is also the tallest, rising to 170' above the East Promenade on a gradient of almost 1:1. Seen here in May 2014, the Routemaster bus was in town for the annual Wheels Festival.
