Cliff collapse results in property partially suspended over air

A section of cliff has fallen away in a neighbourhood in Eastchurch, Kent, resulting in one home to be partially unsupported and hanging over the cliff edge. It’s been reported there were two collapses of ground, one last Friday and a further collapse on Sunday morning.  

This article on the matter describes how Swale Borough Council are opposed to the Environment Agency’s existing shoreline management plan, which does not include any ‘active intervention’ to defend the area concerned. However, the Environment Agency say that the plan was written in full consultation with Swale Borough Council. Read more on this story here.
