Hemel: Sinkhole Home Goes On Sale

A Hemel Hempstead House - right next to a sinkhole - has gone on sale as 'Property of the Week.'

The house at Oatridge Gardends is on the market for just under £420,000 through Sterling Estate Agents.

It comes with a study, a fitted kitchen and breakfast room, three double bedrooms and a second floor guest suite.

But the advertisement fails to mention the massive, gaping sinkhole which suddenly opened up last month and looked like it was in danger of swallowing up one house.
The hole, 35 ft wide and 20 ft deep, appeared overnight on 15 February at the height of the floods.
