Heard about this on Facebook. Apparently friends mum stood on the beach and was amazed to see the sea "vanishing." Good job it wasn't a big wave! Caused a two foot swell though.

A "mild tsunami" along the South West coast was probably caused by an underwater landslide, a coastal expert has said.

The unusual tidal surge struck the Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Hampshire coastline on Monday morning.

There were reports of rivers changing direction, fish leaping out of water and hair standing on end due to static.

Dr Mark Davidson, from the University of Plymouth, said the surge was quite a "rare" occurrence.

Which was it, tidal or landslide-caused?
