Undercliff operation continues

Wednesday, February 19, 2014 - 12:53

THE operation to move Undercliff Drive residents' possessions from their landslip-threatened homes is due to continue today (Wednesday).

The army, coastguards and Island Roads have been involved in the Isle of Wight Council-led operation to help residents evacuate their homes following serious safety concerns after ground movement.

Yesterday (Tuesday) Isle of Wight photographer Shane Thornton captured the scene, from above the affected area, as shown in the pictures below.

Despite rumours of a visit by prime minister David Cameron — following comments he made about visiting flood hit areas — the Isle of Wight Council and MP Andrew Turner's office said they had not been informed of such a visit.
