This will come as a shocking blow for the county and follows controversy sparked last June when hordes of day-trippers descended on Durdle Door as the first lockdown eased. They left tons of litter behind with no regard for the band of local volunteers who had to clean up the rubbish. The natural limestone arch on the Jurassic Coast also saw three people seriously injured when they jumped off the rock face into the sea and had to to be flown by air ambulance to hospital. At the time, police officers had to clear people off the beach to enable the landing of two lifesaving helicopters.
This part of the Jurassic Coast has been enjoyed by millions of visitors in its long history, and the leaked document reveals that the decision to remove the famous ‘Door’ has not been taken lightly. It further states the treasured arch ‘will not be lost completely’.
According to informant, Arthur Onion, who leaked the document early this morning, Durdle Door will be carefully removed in handy chunks using the latest laser cutting equipment and put up for sale as a whole. The new owner will be given full instructions on how to rebuild it.
A billionaire has already shown interest in purchasing the arch saying he wishes to reconstruct the beauty spot for his wife.
