Villa built on top of apartment block

Construction

A Chinese man has built a villa complex on top of a 26-storey apartment block in Beijing, but authorities have ordered him to take it down, saying extreme weather could blow it down and that the extra weight could cause the roof of the building to fall in. Owner Mr Zhang did not secure permission to build the complex and has been given 15 days to remove it.
