Drivers are being warned that a dangerous sinkhole has appeared on a busy Worksop road.

The “massive” hole was spotted today (Thursday, April 5) on Carlton Road next to the old Newcastle Arms.

Resident Jack Kirk posted this photo on Facebook to warn motorists.

It’s around 10 months since a larger six-foot sinkhole that took weeks to fix appeared just a few metres away on Carlton Road.

The Guardian has contacted Severn Trent for comment.

A spokesman for Via, who deal with Highways on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council, said temporary traffic signals had been put in place to make the road safe.

Investigatory work will be carried out tomorrow to establish the cause of the hole.
