The children of a victim of the Looe landslide in March say they're relieved that their mother's house will be cleared, seven months after she died. Susan Norman's house on Sandplace Road has been left untouched, with her possessions on full view.
The council will start work to clear the site today. It's expected to take up to 6 weeks. Traffic may also be disrupted as skips will be placed on the road.
We appreciate that the ongoing closure of St Martin’s Road is causing problems for many local residents and businesses and are committed to reopening the road as quickly as possible.
Our engineers have been working to draw up a scheme which will enable us to partially re open the road before the main summer season gets underway. We are now waiting for the affected residents, the police and Health and Safety Executive to give us the formal go ahead to start the work."
– Paul Masters, Interim Chief Executive, Cornwall Council
