It might need some fixing up, but this apartment block in eastern China clearly has one heck of a driveway.

Because when road planners in WenLing, Zhejiang province, could not persuade the final two families living there to move out, they simply built the four lane highway around them.

The road - an access way into a new train station - will soon have thousands of cars racing past the property every day.

Stubborn resident Zhang Ling, 46, explained: "They didn't offer us enough compensation to leave so we're staying."

"It could be a good opportunity for us. We could open up a drive through shop on the ground floor." he added.
