The couple was found dead in their car inside the Beaminster Tunnel in Dorset.

Heavy rains and landsides had blocked the entrances of the tunnel and the couple died unnoticed and lay there for nearly a week before being recovered.

This has been reported in The Telegraph of dated 17th of July 2012.

The sad death came to light when the Dorset Fire and Rescue Service were contacted by Avon and Somerset police regarding the partial collapse of the Beaminster Tunnel.

When the team arrived, they saw a vehicle trapped beneath a huge pile of mud.

It seems there was also a report of two missing persons in Dorset. They had been missing for over a week and, it is believed that the same two must be trapped in the vehicle.

The families have been informed.
