Residents in a village on the Devon and Cornwall border say they're worried there's been more land movement after a road collapsed. Cornwall Council has this morning met with people living in Calstock who say they want structural surveys carried out straight away.

They're worried the landslip is getting closer to their homes. Five families have already been evacuated and are staying with friends. Structural engineers are trying to work out a short term fix but it could be months before the road is repaired.
