Since the shoreline is made up of boulders, gravel, and relatively fragile land, chunks often break. But a shift in this caliber has never happened before.
One resident even saw more than half of her garden disappear into the abyss last Tuesday. Local authorities asked local residents to evacuate temporarily.
Christian Pilling, who works in the neighborhood, told the BBC he was walking nearby and it was “the shock of his life” when he saw what happened. “I don’t think there was anyone on the beach. We got there about half an hour after it happened,” he added.
Residents avoid the place at high tide. “The entire region is suffering from coastal erosion,” said Joan Cobain, who lives close to the beach. We have seen major landslides before. And Shirley Reese (58 years) died in 2001 and her husband, Donald (63 years), was seriously injured when a landslide swept their car and plowed it over a cliff in the sea.
The municipality is in contact with Crown Domain, which is responsible for the beach division until the tide mark, and warning signs have been put in place. North Wales Police said earlier they were aware people were gathering on the beach to take pictures and urged the public to leave the area. According to the British Geological Survey (BGS), Nevin is in a “fall danger zone”.
