Dozens of newly built homes worth up to £20 million are set to be torn-down due being built on structurally unsound foundations, according to reports.

The development site in Cambridge has plans to develop up to 2,500 new, high-quality homes, but after just 90 new homes were built 36 will have to be removed after the developer found faults in their construction.
