Soil will be stabilised at the site of a road tunnel in Dorset where two people were killed in a landslip, the county council has agreed.

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

The estimated £2.1 million repair work was one of two options considered – the other was a concrete hood extension.

The work, subject to planning permission, is expected to start at the beginning of January.
