A new campaign has launched as summer approaches to make people aware of the risks they face when they head for the coast.
#BeCliffAware reminds people of the risks of cliff collapse.
This was an issue that was featured in the Coasts chapter of the textbook that I wrote, which features a stretch of cliff near Sidmouth which has had a number of recent collapses, and access to that area of the beach has now been closed off.

People are taking selfies at cliff edges and putting themselves at great risk. This has led to people having media attention, and there have also been organisations involved in taking less care than perhaps they needed to.

Barely a week goes by without some cliff collapse. Ask students to keep an eye out for these in the media, plot where they are happening and see whether you can spot a pattern.
