This is the dramatic moment five people fall into a massive sinkhole which opens up in the middle of the pavement. The street beneath their feet swallows them and pulls four of them inside the large gap, while a fifth managing to hang on to a metal bar just below the surface.
Eyewitnesses can be seen in the dramatic CCTV gathering around the hole, reported to be around 10sq metres and two metres deep. After a few minutes the fallen are helped back to the surface by those watching the event unfold. All need hospital treatment for minor injuries.
