A 52 year old woman has told the "News" she is lucky to be alive after trees came crashing down a 100 foot hill in Skelmorlie and struck her house, but fears that the area could be a danger zone in future storms.

A landslide in Skelmorlie resulted in trees falling on her sandstone house in the Main Road, near the Station Road junction, and trapped her inside during the height of last Monday's storms connected to Hurricane Katia.

Sandra Logan said: "I was basically sitting up on the computer and suddenly I heard this loud bang and crash." Full story in this week's Largs and Millport News.
