Landslip leaves caravans teetering

BBC News - More than a dozen caravan owners have had a lucky escape after a landslip in south Wales left them teetering on the edge of a cliff.

The rockfall happened at Porthkerry Leisure Park, Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, at about 22:00 GMT on Monday.

Work is under way to move caravans away from the edge to another part of the site, which has 300 pitches in total.

The Vale of Glamorgan council said it was a "matter of concern" and the authority is investigating.

The council has adopted a 'Shoreline Management' plan for this section of the coast which suggests that any repairs to cliffs or the introduction of any built sea defences would be inappropriate, recommending instead, 'no active intervention.
