Many thanks to On The Wight reader John James for sharing a video shot by Stephen Plummer last week of the landslide between Totland and Colwell Bay.
As you can see from the footage below, this is not just a case of some rock and earth sliding down the cliff blocking the path.
It’s very clear that there’s been significant movement in the seawall, creating the very large cracks along the path.
The video footage really succeeds in conveying quite how serious this landslide has been.
For obvious reasons, it is now closed off to the public.
The council have placed barriers up on either side of the landslide.
