BARRY Coastguard has sent its team out on patrol following reports of rock falls at Jackson’s Bay, Barry Island, this week.

The volunteer team identified several new rock falls at the Bay.

A Barry Coastguard spokesman said: “We ask People who visit the Bay, to stay away from the base of the rocks in case of any further falls.

He added that people should report any falls by calling 999 and asking for the Coastguard.

A Vale of Glamorgan Council spokesman said: “The council is aware of this matter and has sent an officer out to investigate.

“There are signs at various points along the Wales Coast Path warning people of the dangers of rock falls and fencing has been erected for walkers’ protection.

“The Council has also previously carried out a combing exercise to remove loose rock overhangs from Jackson’s Bay.

“Rock falls can occur anywhere along the Vale coast and beach users are always advised to stay away from the base of cliffs for this reason.”
