Construction company starts to secure dangerous rock face at Děčín

A construction company started work Saturday on making safe part of a steep rock face at Děčín in the north of the country where around 25 tonnes of rocks and heavy boulders fell last weekend. Some of the boulders fell amid houses lower down which have been evacuated. Permission for the work to start was given Friday by the local council. It is hoping that the state forestry company which owns the land will contribute to covering at least half the costs of the emergency work.
