Beaminster landslip tunnel repairs experience delays


The reopening of a Dorset road tunnel, where two people from Somerset died in a landslip, has been further delayed.

Rosemary Snell and Michael Rolfe died in July 2012 when their car was buried at Beaminster Tunnel.

Specialist soil nailing, reinforcement and drainage work has been taking place since December, with the reopening date initially planned to be in May.

Dorset County Council said "despite every effort" the tunnel would now open late in July.
