Two houses evacuated after sinkhole chaos in Essex | The Sun

TWO houses were evacuated after a sink hole opened up on a residential road.

A 6ft (1.8m) by 4ft (1.2m) cavern almost swallowed driveways of two adjoining properties in Grays, Essex.

Stricken Rectory Road was closed as a precautionary measure, Thurrock council said.

The fire service said it was working with the council, police and utility companies "to make the scene safe".

A spokesperson for Essex Fire Brigade said they were called to the incident at 11.40am on Thursday after a gas main was exposed.

A spokesman for the council said there were no injuries it had been made aware of.
