Stairway to Heaven? Not even for God if this real estate developer has their way...

Daily Mail: Developers demolish all the stairways of a building in bid to evict family on the seventh storey

""A furious family is suing property developers after they demolished every staircase in a seven-storey apartment block to make them quit their top floor flat.



Mum Zhao Yanhong, 42, claims developers - who want to demolish the flats in Mianyang, south west China, to build a factory - hired thugs to force out other residents but she refused to budge.


'Then one day they turned up with machines and men and knocked out all the stairs to strand us here. They are just trying to bully us out of our home,' said Yanhong.""
