7:37am 26th February 2014
No one was to blame for a major landslip that killed a couple as they drove through Beaminster Tunnel.
An inquest into the deaths of 67-year-old Rosemary Snell and 72-year-old Michael Rolfe has recorded a verdict of accidental death.
The pensioners from Somerset were killed when their car was covered in tonnes of mud in July 2012, during one of the wettest summers on record.
Their bodies were found 9 days later.
