Large sinkhole opens up in St Albans, UK
A large sinkhole has opened up on a street in St Albans forcing the evacuation of dozens of residences in the night.
The sinkhole opened up in Fontmell Close, a cul de sac in the city of St Albans, Hertfordshire, leaving many homes in the area without water, gas and electricity, said the council.
“The return to normal is likely to take weeks and all agencies in Hertfordshire are working together to support families affected,” said the council spokesman.
