Elie Park of Farm Road, Gillams, was shaken out of bed at 4 am when a landslide [rockfall?] came tumbling down a hill near his property. His wood shed was hit by rolling rocks tearing away the front of the building, and some rocks also crashed through the roof. There are other rocks on the hill which pose a threat to his property.
