Parents condemned for crazy clifftop camping spot
The Coastguard in the UK was furious and needed to move the family away from the area.
“Today’s call was to attend a section of the Cleveland Way to issue safety advice to two adults and a child camping on the cliff edge,” the Staithes Coastguard said.
“An Officer from North Yorkshire Police also attended due to breach of coronavirus restrictions.
“Safety advice was given from Coastguard Rescue Officers due to the dangerous location of their tent, especially with recent landslips.
“If you see anyone at risk or in danger at the coast, immediately call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.”
As a social media post was put up about the incident, people have slammed the couple for being "braindead".
“Not just being stupid for themselves & putting a child in danger but using up valuable time with the coastguard when they could be elsewhere,” one user wrote.
Another agreed, saying: “Beggars belief! You can see where the ground has partially broken away! Braindead”.
People were particularly angry as the trail where the family were found has recently seen devastating landslides.
