A number of giant chasms have already appeared across the country leading to travel chaos and homes being put under threat and experts have warned this number could grow.If the wet weather continues, it is expected that the ground will become more unstable but even when our British weather returns to normality sinkholes are expected to appear as the underlying rock dries out.Already the UK has been hit by a unprecedented number of giant holes.Usually, Britain experiences around 20 sinkholes a year in urban areas but the latest bout of bad weather brings the number reported in urban areas to five in the last month alone.
