Repair work starts on the Cornish village left with just one route in and out by last winter's storms.

Locals in Trevone warn it risks being cut off after the route behind Porthmissen beach was battered by giant waves.

They left chunks of the road strewn across the beach.

Nine months later repairs are finally underway, after concerns from residents.

Speaking after inspecting the repair works, MP Dan Rogerson said: “We knew that this repair work would take time given the scale of the damage to the road and the need for it to be properly assessed and repaired.

"After working in Government to secure vital funding for recovery and flood prevention works following the winter storms it is great to see that the repairs to the road at Trevone are now well underway.

“Re-opening the road will keep Trevone properly connected and along with the forthcoming repairs to the coast path will mean that the village is well and truly open for business again."
