A 12-metre-high cliff on a beach in Albufeira has collapsed. The cliff disintegrated onto Maria Luísa beach.

No material damage or injuries were caused and, according to the Portuguese Environment Agency, it was the second largest cliff fall this year, having created 2,500 tons of rubble.

It was on that same beach that five people were killed after another section of cliff crumbled onto the sands below in August 2009.
