An inquest is due to start today (25 February) into the deaths of two pensioners who were killed in a landslide in Beaminster Tunnel.

62-year-old Rosemary Snell and 72-year-old Michael Rolfe who were from Somerset died in July 2012 when their car was buried in tonnes of falling mud.

Their bodies were found several days later by Dorset Fire and Rescue after they were reported missing to the police.

The inquest is being held at County Hall in Dorchester and is expected to last two days.
