British family living in a cave - Christmas 1958

It's Christmas 1958 and the Smith family of Wolverley, near Kidderminster, are still living in a cave.

Click on the picture to go to the newsreel on the British Pathe site.

Later. Gary Allanach has tweeted this story from the Kidderminster Shuttle about a cave in Wolverley, quite possibly the same one, selling for £100,000 in July 2007.
