The stupidity of some

Less than 24 hours after a substantial landslide at nearby East Cliff, West Bay, about 1 mile further along the beach from where this photograph was taken, and less than 2 miles from the spot where holidaymaker Charlotte Blackman, 22, was killed by a landslide on Freshwater beach, just over a year ago on July 24, 2012, these idiots pitch their tent right beneath a cliff overhang.
The warning signs are clear and along this stretch of the "Jurassic Coast" particularly here, the signs are large and numerous as there have been a significant number of cliff falls over some months since last year.
Whether it is apathy, ignorance or just plain stupidity it is beyond belief that someone could behave in a most negligent fashion.
One of the occupants of this tent was apparently no more than a toddler.
