|KUCHING (Jan 26): Lundu police chief DSP Damataries Lautin said the road leading to Kampung Siru Dayak has been cut-off due to soil erosion which occurred last night.

“We have informed the Lundu Public Works Department on the matter for immediate attention,” said Damataries in a statement today.
He added that the incident was reported by personnel from the Sematan police station who discovered the soil erosion at around 11pm last night.
For the villagers in Kampung Siru Dayak to leave their village, they could use Jalan Utama Pan Borneo or Jalan Kampung Pueh as an alternative.
