A RECYCLING truck/lorry was almost swallowed up by a SINK HOLE as binmen carried out their morning collection.
The stricken rubbish truck was finally removed from its precarious position by workmen at 4pm
The workers were forced to abandon their truck as it teetered on the edge of the massive hole, that is thought to have emerged because of a fresh water leak.Council contractors managed to move the massive vehicle before it fell through the road by laying down a temporary surface of heavy-duty wooden boards. The hole opened while binmen did their rounds in Sidcup, south east London, this morning. Witness Elaine Roles tweeted: “The hole is growing by the minute and the lorry is sinking!”
