A MAIN road on Spain’s south coast has been blocked after a massive boulder crash down onto the carriageway almost blocking it almost completely.

The 112 Andalucia emergency control road said the N-340 is closed between km 287.1 (Torrox) and 288.7 (Nerja) in both directions.

An alternative route is in operation via the A-7 motorway.


No-one was reported hurt in the incident.

Recent heavy rains have made many areas unstable and a landslide was blamed for the derailment of a train near Barcelona that left one person dead this morning (Tuesday).
