No warning signs were installed to warn members of the public about the danger of an eroded coastal path in Fife.

According to The Courier, strong waves battered a hole several-feet wide under a section of the trail at Crail beach yesterday (November 9th) morning, leaving it dangerously undermined.

The newspaper reported that Fife police were informed of the problem, and duly passed it on to Fife Council, which has responsibility for that part of the pathway.

However, when a photographer from the newspaper visited the site in the afternoon, the gap was still accessible with no warning signs in place.

While it was clear to most that the area was unsafe, some people were spotted walking over the path.

Afterwards, a spokesperson for the council told the newspaper action had been taken.

"We are aware of the situation and the area has been fenced off. We are investigating at the moment," parks team leader for north-east Fife, Peter Howden, said.

In August this year, police in Flintshire called for the installation of warning signs on a beach in the area, after several walkers got stuck in quicksand.
