The Lynton and Lynmouth Railway has reopened after a landslip forced it to close at the start of the month.

It's thought to have been a result of combined heavy rain and wind, which sent tonnes of rocks onto the world's steepest cliff railway, blocking the track.

The railway was not operating at the time and no one was hurt. The train has not been damaged either.

All the works have now been completed.
