Brentford to Hackney by tunnel.

'Mole Man' fined 300K for burrowing


A man nicknamed 'Mole Man' who liked to dig tunnels has been fined 300,000 after his hobby nearly caused his house to collapse.
Retired engineer William Lyttle, 77, spent 40 years excavating a maze of tunnels beneath his 20-room Victorian property in Hackney, East London, before the council intervened.
But now he has been ordered to pay almost 300,000 to the local council after his house nearly collapsed.

The amount is the cost of repairs carried out by the council.
It is believed to be the highest in a "public nuisance" case.
Inspectors discovered that parts of the house were supported by nothing more than household appliances and that ceilings had fallen in as a result of his extensive "home improvements".
Mr Lyttle also dug out holes around his home, in which he placed a range of items including cars and boats.
