You just never know what might happen next

Police and council officials have attended a location in a suburban area of Nottingham where a house, believed to have been empty for up to 15 years, suddenly collapsed this morning, leaving a pile of dust where it once stood.

The house, at 43 Nincompoop Street in the Radford area of the city, was a two-bedroom council property built in the 1950s, and was of a similar design to many others in the locality.

An eyewitness, who gave her name as 'Janice', rolled her eyebrows, as she said:

"The kids were always in there, getting up to 'you know what'. Ehhhhhh?"

Another, 'Pete', who looked like he had just got out of jail, said:

"I was just standing there. It suddenly collapsed into itself. It's a bit of a bugger, because I was planning to sleep there tonight. I've just got out of jail, you know."

Council officials say they will try to rebuild the house later this week.
