BEACHGOERS are being urged to keep away from the Charmouth mudslide after yet more rescues.

Two men and a girl were freed from Charmouth's East Beach, near Lyme Regis, and there were numerous rescues during the Easter period.

Coastguards have been putting up warning signs about the mud hazard.

Lyme sector manager Pete Pritchard said: "There have been numerous rescues by the Coastguard Rescue team to members of the public getting trapped in this extremely soft mud during the Easter period in this area.

"The public are strongly advised to stay on the beach, not just here, but all along this stretch of coastline.

"Be aware of your surroundings and please do not place yourself or others at risk."
