Thankfully no-one was inside the VW Lupo when the ground on Main Road in Walter's Ash gave way on Sunday 2nd February 2014. 

The hole is about 4 .5 meters wide and about 30 foot deep - that's about the height of a two storey house.

The car is still down at the bottom of the hole buried under a pile of rubble and the district council are trying to work out what to do next.
