Just days after a woman fell to her death, daredevil tourists continue to risk their lives on loose cliff edges - all in pursuit of Instagram fame.

Warnings were issued to coastal walkers last week after there were three major cliff falls near Seaford Head in the UK.

On Thursday rescue teams uncovered the body of a woman at the Seven Sisters cliffs near Cuckmere Haven.

It's believed the woman fell from the popular tourist cliff top destination

Despite the incessant warnings and a fatal accident, tourists have been spotted perching on the edge of cliffs at Birling Gap, in East Sussex to pose for pictures over the weekend.

A spokeswoman for the National Coastguard and Maritime Agency urged people to stay on footpaths and to avoid cliff edges after thousands of tonnes of rubble collapsed from a cliff last week.

She said: “The cliff is very unstable, people should stay away from those cliffs it is not a safe place to be."
