Landslide between Nerja & Torrox causes road closure

The N 340 coastal road from Torrox Costa to Nerja has had to be closed off this evening due to heavy rains earlier in the day causing a landslide. A huge rock fell from the cliff blocking one side of the road.
Fortunately no damage to individuals or vehicles has been reported. Emergency services are currently securing the area this evening and directing traffic from Torrox and Nerja to use the Autovia. The rock had fallen near the Calaceite beach.

Recent heavy rainfall caused a sudden instability to the structure of the slope, causing the slipping of surface soil and rock and the collapse of cliffs.
