Mudslip rail line in Cornwall to remain closed

A train line struck by landslips during last week's floods in Cornwall will not reopen until mid-December.

The Newquay to Par branch line was closed by mudslides on the track near Luxulyan.

A spokesman for Network Rail said there had been three landslips, with the worst taking "up to four weeks" to repair.

Hundreds of homes and businesses were affected by the flooding, which was 6ft (2m) deep in places.
