The Royal Marines have come to the aid of a village in south east Cornwall that's been cut off by a landslide.
More than forty cars have been stranded in Calstock since Christmas. Today the Marines used a fleet of landing craft to retrieve them and ferry them along the River Tamar to a nearby quay.
The whole rescue operation is thanks to a ten year old schoolboy who came up with the idea of involving the military. Our Cornwall correspondent Steve Hardy reports.
