Landslide on Greek island beach injures seven tourists

A landslide on a popular beach on the Greek island of Zakynthos left one holidaymaker hospitalised and six others, including two children, with minor injuries.

Video footage on local media websites showed beachgoers running in panic as a large part of a cliff on Navagio beach tumbled down close to the shoreline.

It showed other tourists were lucky to have escaped the rockfall.

One of the island's main tourist attractions, Navagio is also known as 'shipwreck beach' because it has a shipwreck on the shore. Surrounded by steep cliffs, it can only be reached by boat.

A 34-year-old Czech woman was treated for back injuries and was transferred to hospital, while the other six were treated for minor injuries.
