Parts of cliff at Content Cot falling to pieces

A popular cliff that was used as a fishing spot broke off into several huge pieces which fell into the ocean beneath it on Monday night.
A resident at Content Cot, St Philip, made the discovery on Tuesday morning when he went to fish.
Eighty-four year-old Ruby Christie, who grew up in the area, said it could have been a disastrous situation if the cliff was full of people as it usually was.
“A lot of men come out here and stand on that very same spot to fish. For the life of me I?cannot imagine that that rock didn’t pop off with all those people standing there.”
Another resident also expressed shock at the situation as she stated:?“People come from all the place and fish up there.”
She said residents had contacted the Coastal Zone Management Unit and some officials had visited the area to look at the damage. (MB)
