People living in nine homes evacuated when a mineshaft collapsed leaving a 25 metre hole have today been allowed home - for 30 minutes.
Scott Moffatt, his partner and their six month old son Max returned to pack up their belongings after being told they won't be able to go back home until after Christmas.
" We are staying with family but it is a squash. My dad is loving seeing his grandson everyday but it's not the same as having your own space.
"It's Max's first Christmas so it is not ideal but at least we have had some access."
