£25,000 for a four-bed house (with a slight problem)

A luxury cliff-top house in Torquay worth £400,000 is being auctioned off for just £25,000 - because it might fall into the sea. The four-bedroomed home is in a cul-de-sac, has a balcony and of course great sea views.

The only trouble is, the property next door has already fallen into the sea. Although Tor Cottage is currently in excellent condition, its fate - courtesy of Mother Nature - is inevitable. Jonathan Gibson reports on a future property crash with a difference.
