'House of Horrors' remnants cleared away

The final remnants of Christchurch's 'House of Horrors' are being cleared away today.

Christchurch City Council contractors are clearing the last of the rubble from the demolished property on the corner of Wainoni Rd and Hampshire St, where the bodies of Tisha Lowry and Rebecca Chamberlain were discovered buried. They were murdered by Jason Somerville.

The semi-detached property was pulled down in January after four arson attacks.

The council and Fire Service are paying for the demolition and rubble clearance.
