A luxury home on an exclusive road near Wimbledon collapsed in the middle of the night, leaving windows shattered and debris littering the site.
The millionaires' row home, next to Richmond Park, had been undergoing renovations and reportedly collapsed after work in the basement was not properly supported.
Photos show the remains of the five-bed detached home, which was sold for £1.1 million last October, with windows and doors left in a precarious pile after hundreds of bricks collapsed.
Council plans show the owner was seeking to remove a swimming pool and build a two-storey side extension.
Councillor David Cunningham said the owners had only applied for building regulation permission two days ago and 'therefore carried out works without our guidance and approval.'
