Surely the most over-the-top headline of the year!

Posted by Dave Petley

Various daily newspapers in the UK are reporting on the Pennan landslide situation (more of which below). However first prize in the hysterical over-reaction category (the British tabloids pride themselves in their ability to out-do each other in this class) goes to the Mirror for this headline:

Unbelievable! Meanwhile, back in the real world, the residents of the village have now been advised to leave the village for a week whilst the landslide is remediated. The plan appears to be to remove the unstable section above the road. The BBC has a good short video of the site here.
