@17.15 I would say they are premature in lifting the warning. According to www.raintoday.co.uk we are in for a deluge.

There are two slow moving landslips I am watching at the moment. Rain has a dramatic effect sometimes.1. The red cliff at Compton, where the deep red cutting is on the military road, the field where the hang gliders take off from has a crack that appeared in the last rainy period, when that goes it may be in the news. The part of the field that has moved has forced the farmer to move her electric fence altogether this time. I would imagine that the shear height of this slip will cause more instability further inland.2. Headon warren, a slow moving slip right at the top near the top viewing seat. It stopped for years (one old man told me it was there unchanged when he was a nipper), but started again in the last rainy period, when that goes it may not be in the news but it will be bad for the paths across the lower part of the Warren. It will also alter the look of the place somewhat.I see these slips once a week all year round, but when it gets exciting I go every day LOL
