Landslide cuts off Britain as storms hit south west.

The main train line out of Britain has been blocked by a landslide, cutting off the country from Cornwall, as storms bring flooding and disruption to large parts of the south west.

Emergency supplies of pasties are being prepared to feed those cut off and will be shipped north of the Tamar as soon as John Penhaligon can get the boat\’s engine working properly.
