  • 4th Feb2014 Penzance. A hole on Newlyn Green caused by the the storm on 3rd Feb has been washed out by the next high tide and is now a major concern. Twenty feet or more long and undermined on each side by several feet more. Cormac are on the job and hope to start work today. PZPM20140204D-001_C.JPG

THE footpath across Newlyn Green is impassable after a huge hole appeared.

The hole, initially about 6ft long, was first seen on Monday morning.

But after another high tide in the evening, the hole got deeper and longer and had enlarged to around 20ft long and up to 10ft deep by Tuesday afternoon but in the evening further damage was done and part of the footpath has now been completely washed away.

The area has been barricaded off so that members of the public are not in danger.
