Greenwich Sinkhole

Another sinkhole has opened up in Greenwich, south-east London, at 4am this morning.

This one, in Woodland Terrace, almost swallowed a family saloon car.

 

No-one was hurt, but residents reported hearing a loud ‘sound like thunder’.

The road is currently closed to traffic, but residents have not been evacuated.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich will continue to prioritise the welfare of our residents and seek to minimise the inconvenience caused. We are ensuring that Thames Water and SGN are communicating with households at the scene.

-Greenwich council spokesperson

A similar sinkhole appeared at the Hexagon Housing Estate in Plumstead last week on Bank Holiday Monday. You can hear a further LMMNews report on  that incident here.
