Police have taped off part of a road in Margate after a hole some one metre wide and five metres deep appeared.
The ‘sinkhole’ – described as a void by Kent Highways – appeared on the side of Millmead Road at the junction with Irvine Drive, at about 1.40pm today (October 31). The road is closed between that junction and Millmead Avenue.
Police have closed off the road and highways workers are en-route.
UPDATE. Margate, Millmead Rd now closed between Irvine Dr & Millmead Ave due to a void in the carriageway: https://t.co/jVUnuFUnG5
