A residential road has been forced to close after a burst watermain caused a large 'sinkhole' in Margate.
Southern Water and council highways teams were alerted to the void on Church Road on Friday, Kent County Council (KCC) said.
In a statement Southern Water apologised and said: "Repairs to a burst three inch watermain were completed on Saturday."
KCC said the road remained closed for public safety.
The council added a time had not been set to reopen the road and further investigations were needed.
