WALKERS have been urged to take extra care on National Trust land at Headon Warren.

The site has suffered significant landslip in the last week and diversions have been put in place along part of the coastal path.

The extent of the recent landslip is show in the pictures below, taken by Isle of Wight County Press reader Mark Cooper.

Tony Tutton, property manager, said the area regularly experienced landslips, but a large chunk had broken off  recently.

"Some extra care needs to be taken and people should stick to the diversions," he said.

National Trust has also shifted the permanent barriers at the Hanover Point car park, near Compton Bay. They have been moved back following ground movement around two weeks ago.
