A house in China has been torn down to make way for a new road.

The farmer who lived there had refused to move because he said the money he was offered was not enough.

He had just spent lots of money doing it up when the plans to knock down the whole neighbourhood were revealed.

His was the only house left standing after all the ones around it were removed to make way for a new road.

Finally he and his wife moved out and let the bulldozers move in to tear down the building.
