Landslide blocks Dumfries road amid torrential rain and flooding

A minor landslide has blocked the B725 road near Dumfries after heavy rain in much of Scotland has caused havoc just days before the Cop26 climate conference kicks off.

Network Rail Scotland has closed the train line between Dumfries and Carlisle due to the bad weather.
