Looking back at last year's snow... but will it be back?

It's been a glorious day of blue skies and bright sun across the region, which makes it easy to forget this time last year we were facing blizzards and bitingly cold winds.

They marked the start of the longest spell of cold weather we'd seen in a generation. It was a rude shock after a series of mild wet winters. John Andrews has been looking back at the cold snap and its aftermath.

Family statement following death of woman in landslip

The family of a woman who died in a landslip in Cornwall have said it was a 'potentially avoidable tragedy'. The home of 68 year old Susan Norman from Looe collapsed following torrential rain on Friday.

Her family say the property's safety had been a concern of Susan's for some time and that contractors had been working on the property to support the retaining wall. The house is due to be demolished today.

Missing Looe woman was last heard from at 6.50pm

A family friend of the woman missing after a house partially collapsed in Looe has told ITV News West Country that she was 68 years old.

Dave Holford says that Susan Norman had three children - a son and two daughters. He said they last heard from her at 6.50 pm last night when she texted to say she was tired after a long journey and was going to bed.
