A large sinkhole has appeared in the road in Tameside, council workers have warned.
It’s 18 months since a massive 14m hole appeared in Mancunian Way – but luckily this new cave-in, in Hyde, is a fraction of the size.
It’s been estimated at around 1m x 1m.
Tameside Highways workers tweeted the above images after they were responding to an emergency callout.
