It's been almost six weeks since an old mine shaft collapsed in Egremont, forcing nine families to move out of their homes.
The homes on Howbank Road had to be evacuated after a drilling rig being used to cap a mine with concrete, fell around 50 feet into the shaft on 14th November.
Some families managed to make it back home in time for the festive period, however some have decided not to return at all.
