AN INQUEST is to be held next month into the deaths of two people who died in a landslide at a tunnel.

Rosemary Snell, 62, from Misterton, and Michael Rolfe, 72, from Fivehead, died when the car they were travelling in was engulfed by a mudslide in Beaminster Tunnel on July 7 2012.

The West Dorset community was left shell-shocked after their bodies were found 10 days later in a car crushed under hundreds of tonnes of mud, brick and debris.

The couple's inquest is at County Hall, Dorchester, on February 25 and 26, starting at 10am.
