Toxteth tunnel collapse families still out of homes

Emergency services at the scene
The worst affected homes are on Toxteth Grove and Sundridge Street

People evacuated from their homes two weeks ago after a former railway tunnel collapsed in Liverpool, are still not allowed back in their properties.

Several homes had to be evacuated following the collapse on Park Road in Toxteth on 24 July.

Many people returned the same day but 10 properties in Toxteth Grove and Sundridge Street are still empty as structural assessments continue.

A Liverpool City Council spokesman said one person had refused to leave.

The spokesman added that it was still not clear when the remaining residents would be allowed home.
