Experts are announcing for people to take more care around cliffs after a rise in the number of emergency work call-outs.

Coastguards and the Local Government Association( LGA) said people needed to assess dangers more carefully, and not penetrate closed-off areas.

Rescues have been needed for people who climbed extremely far down boulder faces or were trying to retrieve their dogs.

Walkers are also alerted about health risks of stone drops-off from deteriorating cliffs.

Sunbathers were also reminded to avoid sitting too close to the bottom of cliffs in case of falling rocks.

The LGA, which represents more than 370 councils and 48 attack and salvage experts in England and Wales, highlighted the circumstances in which firefighters and other disaster works had had to rescue people who had become caught while trying to save their babies, fallen down cliffs, or gone into sectioned-off neighbourhoods.

Following 118 Royal National Lifeboat Institution opens for beings on cliffs in 2014, the count rose to 166 launchings in 2015.

Firefighters in England rescue parties stuck on cliffs or beaches around once a few months.
