Dorset Council has urged holidaymakers to stay away from Lulworth Cove after four people were injured jumping from cliffs on Saturday afternoon.

In a tweet this morning, Sunday, May 31, the council said the beach remained closed but said it would review the situation tomorrow.

Coastguard, police and an air ambulance were called after four people were seen “tombstoning” from the stone arch into the sea at the holiday hot spot Durdle Door.

It is understood at least three of the four were seriously injured, with one rescued from the sea bed.

In a tweet by Dorset Council on Sunday morning, it said: “The roads to Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door remain closed today (Sunday, May 31). You will not be able to visit the beaches and will be asked to turn around if you try and access the villages. We will review tomorrow, but for now please avoid the area.”

Large numbers of people had flocked to the beach in the hot weather as the UK lockdown restrictions were eased.
