Cornish landslip cuts off 30 homes

Cornwall Council has said that slope stability assessments are underway after a landslide in Lostwithiel cut off 30 homes on Friday.

The council has said that around 1,000t of material has collapsed into Scrations Lane blocking the route to the home.

The council confirmed that no one was injured in the incident and a spokesperson for the council said: “Cormac highways staff are onsite, including our geoenvironmental engineer. They are assessing the situation and checking on the stability of the section of the hillside that has collapsed. Approximately 1,000t of material has collapsed onto the narrow lane and so no vehicles can use it. This means that the residents of around 30 homes in the cul-de-sac can only currently reach their homes on foot. Some residents’ vehicles are on the other side of the landslip and so can’t be moved.”
