A £1.5m project to underpin a number houses following the collapse of a mine in a Cornish village has been completed.

In October 2013 part of a street in Troon, near Camborne, fell into an underground shaft used to clear water from mines.

The subsidence happened after water became blocked in the shaft.

The old shaft has now been cleared to avoid a repeat of flooding and subsidence, said Cornwall Council.
