A Looe road, which has been closed since a woman died in a landslide, has re-opened.

Susan Norman died in her sleep when her home collapsed in torrential rain.

Now St Martin's Road has been shored-up and repairs have been finished.

Gill Bridges from 'Love Looe' says businesses were worried the work would hit trade: "It definitely did have a very negative impact on the businesses in town in terms of a lot of confusion surrounding how you would get to Looe, confusion surrounding road closures, but the reality was that the town was getting ready for the summer.

"We were extremely concerned about the impact that we were struggling to compete with the negative publicity all the time. Every time there was a mention of Looe, the news coverage seemed to be solely on the fact that this road was closed."
