Summary: digital image, colour, aerial view of part of Hurst Spit showing the collapse of a section of Hurst Castle's 19th century east wing. Drone footage, looking west, taken on 17 March 2021.

Identification note: English Heritage was aware of the "very serious issues" affecting the foundations of the castle's east wing but "until the storm of 23 February, there was no signs of any major structural problems". "The storm damage exacerbated the underlying issues, prompting the rapid collapse of the relevant section of the wall, days before our protective works were due to commence."
