A massive Jurassic rock slide on Monmouth Beach at Lyme Regis in Dorset has left a rather embarrassing phallic symbol.

Locals have nicknamed the phallic-shaped rock formation "Monmouth's Member", and it stands proudly against an otherwise flat cliff face.

The rude-looking rock is set to rival another notorious attraction in the county, The Cerne Abbas Giant, famous for his sexually aroused image.



It is an 180ft high figure of a man which has been carved into a steep hill, whose origin and age is unknown but it has become an important part of Dorset folklore.

Monmouth beach is named after the Duke of Monmouth, who landed there in 1685 during his attempt to take the crown from King James II.
