Engineers work on Calstock road

Engineers are tonight trying to work out how to reconnect part of a village on the Devon and Cornwall border which has been cut off after a road collapse. It could be months before the road in Calstock is repaired.

Cars belonging to around twenty residents are stranded on one side of the massive landslip. In the west of Cornwall, a crewman from a river ferry was rescued by lifeboat after his boat was caught up in a fast flowing tide.
