Jersey care home remains open despite cliff below it collapsing

Cheval Roc

A newly refurbished care home in Jersey has been partially evacuated after the cliff beneath it collapsed.

The landslide was caused by continuous heavy rain, huge waves and winds of over 75mph, according to local reports.

The 37 bed Cheval Roc care home is owned by LV Care Group, and currently houses 10 residents. It has been open since February, and its official opening has not yet taken place.

According to news agency SWNS, just the three rooms closest to the cliff have been closed, with residents expected to remain at the home in other parts of the property.

Engineers have said that the home remains structurally safe, despite appearances in the aerial photograph above of the site was taken by Chris Brookes Aerial Photography.
