Residents have described the “exciting but scary” moment a huge sinkhole swallowed up part of a street in south-east London.
The road surface began cracking and collapsed at around 9pm on Tuesday, locals said.
Darren, who chose not to give his last name, said a motorcyclist had a “lucky escape” after his bike fell into the sinkhole, that spans the entire width of the road.
He told the PA news agency: “It happened just outside my house and no one was injured as far as I am aware, thankfully, but the individual on the bike got away with a lucky escape.
