Two families have been forced to leave their homes and a road in Gloucestershire has been closed after heavy rain caused a landslip.
The B4058 from Nailsworth to Horsley near Stroud, has become impassable after an embankment collapsed.
Gloucestershire Highways is at the site, which already had some corrective work done to it earlier in 2013.
Highways crews have placed sandbags on the road to protect the properties below from debris sliding down the embankment.
Families in two households have been asked to leave their homes as a precautionary measure while workers relieve pressure on the landslip.
