Sinkhole appears outside Grantham properties





A sinkhole has appeared outside Grantham properties at the weekend.

He added: “[I am] now worried as it’s growing and now getting closer to ours and other properties.

“Also, it can be a busy green for children and adults alike, so having it closed off is not great.”

Lincolnshire Police have cordoned off the green space for public safety.
