A STRETCH of Isle of Wight esplanade has been blocked following a cliff fall.

The Isle of Wight Council said contractors would be sent to clear the debris from the Sandown/Shanklin Esplanade and it was hoped the route would be open by Tuesday evening.

Two trees came down in high winds last night (Monday) blocking Cockleton Lane, Gurnard, but were cleared later that night.

*Sandown Esplanade was re-opened by this morning (Wednesday) the Isle of Wight Council confirmed.
