Western Australia – A demolition team sent in by the state Government one month ahead of schedule has begun work to clear buildings at the closed east Kimberley town of Oombulgurri.

Residents were evicted three years ago after claims of widespread alcohol abuse and suicide in the community and demolition will take four weeks.

Chair of the former residents' Native Title body, Balanggarra's Cissy Gore-Birch, says many want to return to the community after they were made homeless by their eviction.

Ms Gore-Birch says residents will go back to Oombulgurri despite the demolition of their homes.
