Falmouth Packet: House collapse in Camborne: PICTURE House collapse in Camborne: PICTURE

A house collapsed in Camborne in the early hours of yesterday morning. Nearby residents reported a loud rumble at around 5am this morning.

There are reports that a large crack formed in the property on Tehidy Road yesterday and that Cormac were on site. The area is riddled with mine shafts, with one opening up in a garden next door years ago according to a neighbour.

Tehidy Road was closed both ways due to building masonry in the road between Reskadinnick Road and Vyvyan Street.

The road has been closed due to a collapsed building however properties on the road are still accessible.

Hopefully no one was hurt, this must be horrendous for the owners, it is quite frightening really with all the volume of rain as to whether or not it plays a contributory factor with subsidence. My mining survey revealed uncharted mines within the area!

I was viewing properties at Beacon and Troon several years ago and an adit opened up at Troon.
There are several known mines in Mullion area but their exact location and shafts are uncharted. The one nearest to me was a copper mine I believe.
