Torbay house being demolished

12:16 pm on 7 August 2008

Work has begun to demolish a house on the North Shore of Auckland, which was affected by a slip after heavy rain last week.

Fifteen houses in the suburb of Torbay were evacuated after the slip, but most of the residents have been allowed back.

However, one house was too badly damaged and the Earthquake Commission says work to demolish it began on Wednesday night.
