Sinkhole ‘swallows woman’ in UK (Pictures)

A woman has been taken to hospital after falling into a sinkhole which opened up in the pavement outside a London cafe. An eyewitness reported hearing a “loud scream” before the woman apparently disappeared into the hole.

Police and ambulance services were called to North End Road in Fulham at around 8.50am this morning to reports of a “pavement collapse”. The scene was cordoned off and police confirmed a woman has been injured.

But despite shouts by cafe staff, the woman is said to have squeezed through the chairs and fallen down the hole. The cause of the hole, in Fulham, West London, is now under investigation.
