A motorway bridge has been built around a house in China after the owner refused to move.



The building, located in the city of Guangzhou, is known as a 'nail house' after the owner refused to sell it to the Chinese government.

It was reported that the owner, known only by her surname Liang, did not move because the government failed to offer her a replacement property in an ideal location. She was the only person out of 47 households who refused to budge.

Liang admits that she is happy to deal with the consequences of living surrounded by the motorway and is unconcerned about what others think about her.

She said: ''You think this environment is poor, but I feel it's quiet, liberating, pleasant and comfortable.''
