This Driveway Was So Hungry It Swallowed A VW Lupo Whole

This family in Buckinghamshire had their VW Lupo swalled up by a 30-foot sinkhole on the driveway

Remind me later
Screen Shot 2014-02-04 at 16.50.19 We recently saw a sinkhole swallow up a Mercedes C-Class, and in a similar event in Buckinghamshire, 19-year-old Zoe Smith walked out of her house to find her VW Lupo gone. Incredibly, it had been swallowed up by a 30-foot sinkhole on the driveway. Screen Shot 2014-02-04 at 16.50.19 You can just see the outline of the car at the bottom of the hole. These incidents are apparently common in the area, due to clay mining going back many years. Building inspectors are checking whether or not the rest of the property is at risk.
