£8.5million Chelsea Mansion Collapses

A Chelsea mansion worth £8.5million has collapsed during mega-basement construction work in the heart of the celebrity-filled suburb. 

Neighbours reported hearing a huge thud as loud as thunder in the middle of the night as the mid-terraced house was completely destroyed. 

Emergency services were still at the scene this morning in Durham Place, London, where fire crews worked through the night to secure the buildings.
