A large landslip into the River Colne has caused great concern for a group of homeowners in West Yorkshire following Storm Christoph.

It occurred at the back of three three newly built houses on Manchester Road, leaving the garden of one house just feet from the edge of a ravine.

West Yorkshire Fire Service were called to reports of land slipping close to three homes at 6.12pm on Wednesday 19 January.
