Families evacuated from homes after landslide causes 70ft wall to collapse

Residents were evacuated from their homes in the middle of the night after a landslide caused a 70ft (21m) wall to collapse into their properties. Five families were forced to flee their terraced houses after tonnes of rubble came tumbling down in the pouring rain at 1am on Wednesday (3/2). Terrified locals were woken by the sound of bricks and earth collapsing into their gardens on Spalding Road and Windmill Lane, in Sneinton, Notts. Emergency services rescued the families from four separate properties as their bathrooms and kitchens flooded during the torrential downpour.
