Mine-collapse families still homeless

Nine families who have been forced to leave their homes because an old mine shaft collapsed are spending the weekend in temporary accommodation.

They were evacuated on Wednesday, November 14th, when a 25 metre crater appeared in Egremont.

Efforts to stabilise the area are still on going.
