MOTORISTS had a lucky escape as a huge rock fall blocked the A397 linking Ronda and the Costa del Sol.

Traffic came to a standstill as massive boulders tumbled across the road.

The rock fall comes after several days of rain with yellow warnings for more heavy rain forecast over the next three days.

The A397 is one of the major accident black spots in Malaga province.

The mayors of both Ronda and Marbella have recently called for action to improve safety on the dangerous mountain road after two off-duty Royal Gibraltar Police officers were killed in a motorbike accident.
