Sinkhole opens up in Barming, Kent, cutting off water to new homes
A sinkhole has opened up causing problems for residents in Barming, Kent.
The gaping chasm formed on a cul-de-sac cutting off water two hundreds of people and preventing people from getting into their homes.
The hole was discovered yesterday morning with large cracks appearing on the road and pavements while a large part of someones driveway and fence were swallowed by the hall.
Local authorities have closed part of Broomshaw Road, but no buildings have been damaged as it occurred on the edge of a field.
According to KentOnline, the sinkhole opened up close to the site of a proposed new Taylor Wimpey building site.
Work has not yet been started on the site.
It is not the first time Barming has suffered from the problem.
In 2014, a sinkhole measuring a foot deep emerged in someones front garden, swallowing a plant.
