Home becomes an ‘island’ in building row

As far as planning disputes go, it is a far cry from letters of complaint to the council over an unsightly conservatory.After a row with developers, this family’s home has been left perched 12m (40ft) up on its own concrete island.It all started when they refused to accept compensation to move and, while the row rumbled on, the bulldozers excavated the site around them.
