Fears over stability of Mermaid Rock

1 min read

A huge chunk of the Mermaid Rock at The Needles has fallen into the sea following 92mph winds at the weekend.

The Mermaid Rock fell off the cliff face in 1968 and the latest damage appears to have happened overnight on Sunday (Nov 15). There are now fears that the remaining top part of the rock is unstable and could also fall into The Solent at any time.
