Work to start on tunnel repairs

Preparatory work starts at Beaminster Tunnel today ahead of a major repair scheme which will cost £2.1 million. The tunnel's been closed since a landslip in July, which killed an elderly couple in their car. Today contractors will fence off the affected area and clear vegetation.
