Hole in pavement with 5 foot drop below

Reported in the Footpath / pavement problem category anonymously at 17:15, Sun 11 August 2019

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

On the pavement, about 60 metres from the junction with the A40. This hole is about 30cm long and 10cm wide, however, there seems no support for the tarmac around, and a sharp stamp on the area could easily result in a large hole. Looking through the hole, there appears to be nothing below the tarmac for about 4 or 5 feet. As a result if the hole does open up, someone could easily fall through and easily hurt themselves
