Four homes to be demolished after landslip

Four privately owned properties at Knipe Point near Scarborough will have to be pulled down after further significant land slippage earlier this week put them at risk of collapse.

Following recent bad weather, the properties, which are currently unoccupied, are now just a few metres away from the edge of the same active landslide, which four and a half years ago led to the loss of three bungalows.
