Road built around house as Chinese couple refuse to move

A couple's home in eastern China has been turned into a roundabout after a road was built around it, when they refused to move out.,

Luo Baogen and his wife are the only residents left in a neighbourhood of once-connected homes that was demolished to make way for a major road.

The thoroughfare leads to a newly built railway station on the outskirts of the city of Wenling in Zhejiang province.

Mr Luo said the house cost 600,000 Yuan (around £60,000) to build, but the authorities have offered substantially less to relocate him.
