The Lynton and Lynmouth Railway has reopened after a landslip forced it to close at the start of the month.

It's thought to have been a result of combined heavy rain and wind, which sent tonnes of rocks onto the world's steepest cliff railway, blocking the track.

The railway was not operating at the time and no one was hurt. The train has not been damaged either.

All the works have now been completed.

The New Zealander was a rider for several British teams during his career.

He rode for the Exeter Falcons between 1973 and 1977, when he equalled Ove Fundin's then-record of five World Championship wins.

He passed away, after battling dementia, in his home at Australia's Gold Coast this morning.
