Yorkshire Water respond to landslide claims

Yorkshire Water say it's too early to say who is to blame for a landslide which is threatening homes in North Yorkshire.

Four houses, which are now unoccupied, will have to be demolished at Knipe Point near Scraborough after a cliff collapse, which residents claim is because of a leaking waste pipe from a nearby frozen food factory.

We're aware of the independent report commissioned by the Knipe Point Residents Association. Due to the length and high level of technical information in the report we have not yet been able to fully consider it. We will however look closely at the findings and respond to the residents as soon as possible.
