Video: Sinkhole leaves house close to collapse

Published 18/02/2014

A sinkhole has opened up under a detached house, leaving part of the structure close to collapse and a community concerned about the future of their properties. No-one was hurt when the 25ft wide hole opened up beneath the 100-year-old building in Magdalen's Close in Ripon in North Yorkshire on Monday. But firefighters rescued a dog from the property before the whole area was sealed off amid fears that the precariously leaning side of the brick property could fall at any time.
