A house in Glasgow has been evacuated after it began to sink into a giant hole in the ground.

The couple who live in the Calton area of the city were forced to flee after the house fell apart due to heavy subsidence.

Concern about the safety of the house began to emerge a month ago when cracks began to appear in the back garden and inside the property.

The state of the Millroad Drive property has since deteriorated rapidly, and the couple were advised to leave just before Christmas.

The house may now need to be demolished.
