Here are the latest pictures of the house in Ripon that was torn apart when a sinkhole opened up in the ground.
A 25 foot wide sinkhole has appeared in the North Yorkshire town of Ripon.
Noone was hurt but structural engineers are now assessing the damage. It is thought a 100 year old home will be uninhabitable.

Right next to where sinkhole appeared in Ripon, a planning application notice is hanging up for 75 homes.
A neighbour of the property on the verge of collapse has said she is shocked even though she knew about the gypsum problem.
A councillor said he has spoken to the family living in the house on the verge of collapse and that they were "very distressed".
Local residents said there was a long-standing problem with gypsum-related subsidence in the area which had caused other homes to collapse over the years.
The British Geological Survey has said that the most susceptible area in the UK for sinkholes is the Permian gypsum deposits of north-east England, particularly around Ripon.
A sinkhole has opened up under a detached house, leaving part of the structure close to collapse and people living nearby worried about the future of their properties.
The 25ft (7.6m) wide hole opened up beneath the 100-year-old building in Magdalen's Close in Ripon, North Yorkshire.
Firefighters rescued a dog from the property before the whole area was sealed off.
Police are now warning locals that the house damaged by a sinkhole in Ripon, North Yorkshire, is close to collapsing.
