Part of a cliff in Hastings collapsed on Friday (January 3) as a result of heavy rainfall.

A large section of the cliff at Rock-a-Nore fell into the sea in the afternoon.

Ken Brooks, chairman of Hastings and District Geological Society, said the cliff collapsed under the weight of saturated ground above as a result of the recent severe weather which has hit 1066 Country since Christmas.
