Stormy Broadstairs and St. Peter's
Stormy weather can feel very exciting, and there are some great photo opportunities at this time of year, but please do not put yourself or your family at risk: respect the power of the sea and understand that parts of our shore are being actively eroded at present.
You should check for and take action based on severe weather warnings issued by the Met Office. Should a weather warning be issued, please avoid the lower promenades particularly at high tide and do not venture close to the shoreline.
There is an increased the risk of chalk boulders falling from the cliffs, and chalk arches or stacks collapsing. Kingsgate Arch on Kingsgate Bay is particularly fragile after the recent storms.
Signs along the Thanet coastline alert beach users to the general fragility of the chalk cliffs and advise the public not to sit beneath or walk close to the bottom of any chalk cliffs. Please follow this sensible advice.
Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
