Greek Street man 'stuck' as Hull City Council knocks down neighbouring houses
A HOMEOWNER stuck in the middle of a regeneration area has spoken of his misery as homes opposite are knocked down.
Michael Keal's home is just one of two properties in Greek Street not earmarked for regeneration.
But Mr Keal, a train driver, represents a lone voice in his battle to move out of the empty street.
Now, the properties opposite are being knocked down.

He said: "They have just started knocking down the houses opposite me.
"Our home has been rocking and it is so dusty. Everything I feared would happen is happening."
Mr Keal, 43, who lives with his partner and two daughters, has tried everything to secure a move away.
He said: "My local councillors came round and spoke to me and offered their support but they can't doing anything to help me move.
"There is no way we want to stay in the empty street.
"I asked the council to buy me out at the original market value but they refused.
"I took it to the ombudsman but, while she sympathised, she still came down on the side of the council.
"We can't face living through this."
