Human Interest - Hermit of Abbeydale - Sheffield, Yorkshire

Ernest Eyre, 61, is pictured outside the 12ft-by-9ft hut where he has lived alone for 11 years on a Sheffield Corporation estate. His time as the 'Hermit of Abbeydale' ends on Saturday, as the Corporation has ordered him to leave the hut, which he built from scrap wood and roofing felt with his own hands. Corporation officials have explained that the sanitation arrangements were not satisfactory. Mr Eyre, who is moving to an address on the other side of the city, said: "I lived the life of a hermit for eleven years, until three weeks ago. Now I have to get out, but I don't think I am sorry. I would like to live in a proper house again, with a carpet on the floor."
