Cat's miracle escape after surviving 400ft fall from crumbling clifftop

A lucky cat has finally proved that cats have nine lives after surviving a 400ft fall off Britain’s best-known crumbling cliffs

The white and brown feline slipped from the edge of the crumbling chalk cliff at the Birling Gap, and fell onto jagged rocks almost 125metres below.

The cat managed to escape with only a fractured jaw and broken tooth when it fell from Beachy Head in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Staff from the South Downs National Trust found the free-falling feline on Tuesday, September 29.

A spokeswoman said: “He is making a full recovery. He avoided any serious damage to any of his limbs but has some injuries to his face.

“We think he must be quite some way from his home as, from his demeanour, he clearly isn’t a feral cat.”

Despite its injuries, the cat is safe and well, and now is in need of a new home.

The Beachy Head in Eastbourne is a popular beauty and tourist spot. But it is a highly risky area with buildings on the edge in danger of collapsing into the sea in the near future.
