We need to get out!

That was the cry from Whitehill, St Andrew residents yesterday as the ground continued to slip beneath them in the rural district.

The heavy rainfall over the weekend caused another huge section of the road to collapse, renewing fears of homes collapsing and calls for the Government to relocate residents from the district where the road has been slipping for many years.

Added to their fury was that officials from the Ministry of Transport and Works toured Stepney, St George, yesterday where a road also broke away, and announced it would be urgently repaired.

“The only person that come out here so far is Mr George Payne [parliamentary representative] and he said he was tired writing the ministry asking for something to be done,” said Caralitha Adams.
