The young tourists made it even more dangerously risky as they teetered on one leg and at even dangle their feet over the edge at Seven Sisters Country Park.
In one of the photos it shows a woman, dangling her legs over the edge with her arms spread out wide. Another shot shows a young woman stood on one leg just inches from a sheer drop to the sea below at the popular beauty spot.
The coastguard branded the tourists’ activity as dangerous and warned what should have come automatically to the tourists that no photograph is worth risking your life for.
The antics emerged in a series of posts on Instagram over the weekend under the #sevensisters.
Cliff collapses in the area have been regularly reported this year and in May remarkable footage showed a huge chunk of a 250ft tall chalk cliff fall into the sea. The landslide lost thousands of tons of the rock and resulted in the shift of the stretch of coastline back around ten metres. With the latest images, fresh warnings were prompted. The cliff edge at Seven Sisters is not fenced off.
The spokesman for Dover Coastguard who patrols the area, said that there is nothing they can do to stop them doing it, but do advice and request people not to do it. There are signs up warning people not to go near the edge but it is the beauty of the spot that attract people do take pictures there.
A number of cliffs collapsed around the coast in recent months and it was very clear that these cliffs are very unstable in places. Tourists are thus requested to use the designated paths, take notice of any warning signs, be responsible and not to take any unnecessary risks.
