Sinkhole on grass verge and road outside number 5

Reported in the Kerb damage / issue category anonymously at 11:21, Monday 28 September 2020

Received by Buckinghamshire Council moments later

A sinkhole has been developing outside number 5 since Friday - see first picture. This morning the grass verge and kerbs stones have now moved under the road and the is evidence that there is a large void under the road - see the other two images.

The sinkhole is in the same place as a previous sinkhole which appeared five years ago and was fixed by BCC.

The pavement next to the road and grass verge also appears to be "sagging". Can the sinkhole please be inspected urgently to ensure the verge, road and pavement is safe for use?
