This is the moment a huge chunk of the cliff face falls into the sea at Hastings.

A bystander filmed the dramatic moment and captured hundreds of tonnes of rock crash into the waves.

The video was taken today (Friday) as strong winds and rain battered the Sussex coastline.

Sandstone is made of sand grains cemented together. It is formed from sediment deposited by rivers, the sea, or by the wind.

Chalk is a soft white limestone made from the microscopic skeletons of marine plankton.
