DRONE FOOTAGE Shows GIANT 66 FOOT SINKHOLE in St. Albans, North London, UK

A massive sinkhole has opened up on a street in St Albans, forcing the evacuation of several families from their homes in the night.

The 66ft (20m) diameter hole spread across a front garden and driveway on Fontmell Close and is 33ft (10m) deep.

Hertfordshire County Council said five homes were evacuated and 20 people were taken to a centre set up at the nearby Batchwood Hall nightclub.

Residents are said to have heard a crash before the huge crater appeared.
