In a video that’s been making the rounds on the web, we see the moment three people run to avoid being knocked down by a huge landslide. The footage shows 400 tons of boulders and boulders, the size of cars, breaking away from the cliff. Tourists were on the beach right below sandstone cliffs on the Jurassic Coast in West Bay, Dorset in England.

One of them was filming the block of rock when a large portion of the stack began to collapse. At first clouds of dust appeared on the sides of the rock face, causing the shepherds to turn away.

Autumn has arrived after the last periods of heavy rain, followed by warm weather. Geologist Richard Edmunds said: “After a season of heavy rains the possibility of landslides increases. Although in August these types of phenomena are quite unusual. This is undoubtedly due to the sudden weather changes we have seen.”
