Seaford Town Council clerk James Corrigan told the Brighton Argus today’s collapse is believed to be on the same scale.

He said: “We were expecting something like this might happened because of the cracks that have emerged in the cliffs.

“Potentially there could be further collapses.

“Due to the location it is unlikely there will be anyone in the area but it needs to be checked out.”

No details have been provided about the girl’s age or what she was doing at the cliffs shortly before the fall at 1.20pm today.
