Nine families forced to leave their homes on Howbank Road in Egremont when a mineshaft collapsed have moved back in.
The disused mineshaft collapsed in November taking with it a drilling drig and creating a 25 metre hole.
But, despite assurances from the local council that the area is now safe, one family has decided to move out for good.
Scott Moffatt, his partner and three young children have moved to Maryport instead of moving back.
Mr Moffatt said his partner no longer felt safe in the property following the collapse:
Copeland Borough Council, who own the land, have pumped 200 tonnes on grout into the hole and on Monday (7th January) work will begin on capping the mineshaft.
Residents were allowed back home before Christmas but Ryan Rickerby and his girlfriend decided to wait a week before moving home.
They say they're relieved to be home:
Work should be complete by the end of the month
