Dramatic moment huge chunk of rock collapses from cliff-face as two walkers have a lucky escape

A dramatic video shows the moment a huge chunk of rock collapses from a cliff-face at a beauty spot – narrowly avoiding two walkers. 

The rock fell away from the edge of a cliff in Tregudda Gorge, between Trevone Bay and Padstow in Cornwall.

Two walkers, who were just metres away, had a lucky escape as the cliff crumbles into the sea ahead of them.

The footage shows a few small bits of rock and some chalky dust falling off the cliff-face.

Within seconds a huge chunk of the cliff – including some grass along the top – comes away.

Two walkers can also been seen walking along the top of the cliff in the video, and are unaware about what is happening ahead of them.

As the rock collapses from the cliff-face it crumbles and turns to dust as it falls.

Nobody was hurt in the incident, which took place on July 30.

The land manager at the historical country house Prideaux Place, in Padstow, took the video.

It was shared on their Facebook page to warn walkers in the area to be careful of their surroundings.  

They wrote: ‘This is one of the most dramatic and beautiful parts of the coast on the Prideaux-Brune Estate, and is a special favourite with the family.

Nobody was hurt in the incident but St Ives Coastguard Rescue Team have warned people to 'keep away from the cliff edge.'

‘If you are walking here please be extremely careful and follow the re-routed coast path as there is the potential for more rock falls.’

The St Ives Coastguard Rescue Team shared the footage on their Facebook page, warning people to take care the side of cliffs. 

They wrote: ‘This is why you should keep away from the cliff edge.’
