Yellow 'chlorine cloud' lingers over Beachy Head after infamous suicide spot is evacuated as 50 visitors are left with burning eyes
A six-mile segment of the East Sussex coastline has been evacuated and locals told to shut their doors and windows after a massive 'chlorine cloud' left 50 people with burning eyes and breathing problems.
The coastguard, police, ambulances and fire and rescue crews are all at the worst affected area, Birling Gap, near Beachy Head - a famous headland due to its 530ft drops and high suicide rates as Britain's tallest chalk sea cliffs.
The bizarre cloud has crept inland along the coastline from Eastbourne to Birling Gap, part of Seven Sisters national park.
Up to 50 people have been affected by the cloud with symptoms including eye and throat irritation as well as vomiting.
