Walkers are being warned about the dangers being created by coastal erosion on East Yorkshire's cliff tops.
The cliff path at Flamborough Head has become treacherous
The Humber Coastguard said the track from Sewerby to Flamborough Head had become particularly treacherous.
Spokesman Mike Puplet said strong winds and the thawing of recent frosts and snowfall had left the ground soft and even more vulnerable to erosion.
"It's quite a dangerous cliff path and with recent conditions we're urging people to take extra care," he said.
"It's a very popular walk for people with dogs in the morning, often before daylight, and we get a lot of incidents in this area where the animals have gone over the side and their owners have tried to follow them to rescue them.
"Even if the cliffs are dry we'd urge walkers, and especially those with children or animals with them, to use their common sense and keep well back from the edge."
