A cliff collapse in Zante has left seven injured in after rocks crashed onto a beach packed with Brits abroad.


Shocking video has emegred of a landslide taking place down on holiday goers at Vabaggio on the Greek island.


Terrified tourists can be seen fleeing in panic as the rocks crash down from above.


‘There was a rumble and a rock fell,’ an eyewitness told ANA as per The Sun. ‘Followed by a larger rock and then another.’


Rescuers are believed to be searching to see if there are any undiscovered victims trapped beneath the rocks.


A fire brigade official said:


So far, we haven’t found any trapped people but we will continue searching.


The video shows a wall of rock peeling from the cliff and crashing down on beachgoers below.


A few small boats managed to overturn thanks to the force of the landslide causing high waves in the sea.



One Czech woman suffered back injuries and was transferred to hospital. A further six people, including two children, received treatment for minor injuries.
