Businesses in a Cornish tourist town say they will lose most of their holiday trade when a road is closed for four months later today.
Cornwall Council are starting work to stabilise the area of St Martin's Road in Looe, following a landslip last year which killed a 68-year-old woman. Some local businesses want the work to be delayed until after the main summer season.
If you'd seen the precarious position of some the chalets that were falling over, they were a real danger. And there was a real danger of them falling on to some of the other chalets as well and causing further damage. I think it's fair to say there is no way those chalets could be salvaged.
Two more chalets will be demolished on the Jurassic coast today as cliffs continue to move.
Five holiday homes were damaged last week in a series of landslips to the west of Lyme Regis. Now there is concern for six others. The damaged chalets and access road to Monmouth Beach have been cordoned off.
A row of holiday homes west of Lyme Regis are at risk of being destroyed. Last night, what's been described as a 'major landslip' occured above Monmouth Beach, damaging some of the chalets, and its feared another may happen at any time.
The recent heavy rain is being blamed for the slip, which is the latest of many to hit that stretch of the Jurassic Coast. It is just 12 miles from Burton Bradstock where a 22 year old woman died in July last year. Richard Lawrence reports.
