See the destruction caused to an Edwardian railway in Bournemouth after a huge landslide


An Edwardian funicular railway in Bournemouth has been damaged after a huge landslide following bad weather.

The East Cliff lift was battered by stone, rock, soil and other debris as the pathway at the top of the 100ft verge gave way.

Heavy rainfall and a dip in temperature over the weekend could have triggered the landslide.

The site was cordoned off by council staff on Saturday night over concerns about the safety of the cliff top.

The railway was built in 1908. Nobody was injured during the incident.
