Whitby landslip houses to be demolished

Help

The demolition of five properties in North Yorkshire left hanging over a sheer drop after a landslip is due to start on Friday afternoon.

The Tuesday night landslide left the row of terraced houses on Aelfleda Terrace in Whitby structurally unsafe and Scarborough Council says the houses will be taken down "brick by brick".
