Businesses in a Cornish tourist town say they will lose most of their holiday trade when a road is closed for four months later today.

Cornwall Council are starting work to stabilise the area of St Martin's Road in Looe, following a landslip last year which killed a 68-year-old woman. Some local businesses want the work to be delayed until after the main summer season.
