Two people dead in car buried by tunnel landslide


Two people have been found dead in a car buried under a pile of earth near a partly-collapsed tunnel in Dorset.

The man and woman were discovered in the car near the Beaminster Tunnel on Monday evening.

Avon and Somerset Police said two people from the county had been reported missing and were believed to have been in the Beaminster area.

The car was unearthed near the A3066 tunnel, which has been closed since 7 July after a landslip.
