   LONDON, May 5 (AFP) - Britain and France were 60 feet (20 metres) further
apart on Friday after a huge rockfall near Dover saw 90,000 tons of chalk
subside into the English Channel, the Sun reported Saturday.
   A section of the so-called White Cliffs of Dover measuring 160 feet by
60 feet crumbled leaving a trail of white boulders and debris stretching
650 feet out to sea, the tabloid said.
   "France is 60 feet further away," it celebrated. The two countries are
just 20 miles (32 kilometres) apart at their closest point near Dover in
southeast England.
