A popular, rocky island off the coast of Ireland is closed to visitors for the forseeable future.
Also called Great Skellig, the twin-peaked ridge is located 11.6 kilometres west of the Iveragh Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland.
The Office of Public works have announced that Skellig Michael (Sceilg Mhichíl) will remain closed to allow for inspection of the site.
In a statement released this evening, they said: "Due to a rockfall event on Sceilg Mhichíl today, the Office of Public Works wishes to inform the public that the site will be closed to visitors until further notice.
"There were no casualties as a result of this rockfall event, however, the island has been closed to allow for a full examination of the site and to clear debris.
"Sceilg Mhichíl will reopen to visitors once it has been deemed safe to do so."
