Road built around house as couple refuse to move out

A couple in China have had their home turned into a roundabout after refusing to move out to make way for a new road. They claim they weren't offered enough compensation to cover the cost of building a new property somewhere else.

So, they stayed put and tore up a demolition agreement. It didn't stop the road being built though, which means the couple have ended up with a unique property.
