Warning over north coast cliff edges after winter storms

By David Young

Winter storms have made some cliff edges along Northern Ireland's north coast unstable and dangerous, the RNLI has said.

The storms have dramatically changed the profile of beaches at Whiterocks, Portrush East and Portstewart, creating high, unstable sand cliffs, the organisation warned.

RNLI lifeguard manager Mike Grocott called on members of the public to be careful, and to stay away from cliff edges.

"Winter storms have taken their toll on some of the beaches this year, particularly at Whiterocks, Portrush East and Portstewart," he said.

"Many people returning to these favourite spots may be surprised at how different everything looks. Be careful."
