Crumbling cliff leaves care home teetering on the edge

  • A care home was left teetering on the edge of a sheer cliff face after tonnes of earth fell away in a landslide.

Elderly residents at the Cheval Roc Residential Home on Jersey woke up to the terrifying scene on Thursday last week, just days after they moved in.

The building was left inches from disaster after heavy rain, rough seas and 75mph winds battered the cliff face, causing land and mud to be swept away.

Three rooms closest to the edge will remain unoccupied as residents move in to other parts of the newly-refurbished home, at Bonne Nuit harbour in Saint John, Jersey.

The ten pensioners currently living at Cheval Roc have been given the all-clear to remain there as the damage is assessed.
