CONCERNS about land stability on the coast have led to a warning to people to stay well away from cliff edges.

After the Isle of Wight was pounded by bad weather and with more rain forecast to come, National Trust head ranger Robin Lang urged Islanders to take extra care.

It follows a series of recent landslips at locations including the Undercliff, Compton and Tennyson Down.

"It can be tempting to go and have a look at these things, but we'd ask people to stay away from any cliff edge at the moment," said Mr Lang.
