The landslip that has engulfed a regional rail line is still moving a week after it was first discovered.

Investigations are still continuing on-site at the Hatfield Colliery slag heap between Hatfield and Stainforth, north east of Doncaster to try to find the cause.

The railway line between Doncaster and Goole and Scunthorpe is expected to remain closed for at least two months.

Residents living in Stainforth are concerned about the landslip and local MP Ed Miliband has met pit owners Hargreaves for an update on the situation.
