Extent of Totland landslide revealed

It could be sometime before action is taken in Totland to repair the seawall. Officers are still assessing the situation, we’re told.

Totland cliff fall

Yikes, the extent of the Totland landslide became evident this week after the Coastguard published photos taken from their passing chopper.

As you can see from the pic above, the damage to the seawall and path is extensive.

We’re keeping our fingers crossed for all those living close by to the landslide.

    Well, there wasn’t anyone living close by until recently. They might have considered such a landslip before granting permission for a housing development to be built so close to a potential danger.
