this time there have been many complaints from residents, and many
reports in the 'Portsmouth News' of strange noises coming from
below the ground. Additionally at least 15 houses have been
subject to subsidence, a problem which has never occurred in any
other part of the estate, and which is almost unheard of when
houses are built on chalk. Two properties were so badly affected
that they had to be demolished.
follows are various clips taken over the years from Portsmouth's local
newspaper 'The News'.
