Body found in partially collapsed house: full report

A body has been found in what remains of a house in Cornwall after it collapsed during torrential rain overnight following a major landslip.

The area around the home in Sandplace Road in Looe has been sealed off all day. Sniffer dogs were called in and this afternoon members of the emergency services found the body of what's believed to be Susan Norman inside.

Residents nearby are angry tonight as they say they've warned Cornwall Council on a number of occasions about the threat of landslips behind their homes.
