Barnsley F.C. Walsall F.C. EFL League One

A huge sinkhole has appeared on a road in Walsall – sparking traffic chaos. The gaping hole suddenly opened up on a section of Stafford Street, outside homes, on Thursday, May 21. Dramatic pictures show the massive sinkhole cordoned off by police tape after the incident at around 2.30pm. It currently isn't known what has cause the road to collapse but Walsall Council and West Midlands Police have been contacted for more information. Buses from National Express West Midlands are also being diverted as a result of the dramatic hole, which has been described as a 'black hole'.

This is a live blog and will be updated regularly. The hole opened up in Stafford Street after part of the road was seen to be sinking next to Tyre City this morning. The road has been closed at the junction with Proffitt Street and police are at the scene managing traffic. Councillor Matt Ward, who represents the Blakenall ward, said the hole appeared to be due to a collapsed sewer. He said: "Earlier this morning I reported the road in Stafford Street was sinking.

"I headed into Walsall at about 9.45am and I noticed a dip in the road, like a roller coaster, so I contacted the council. "The cars were going down and then up as they went over it. The sinkhole. "We've then had an email to say the road has collapsed and they believe it's due to a collapsed sewer. "The road is going to remain closed for some time. "I didn't expect as much to collapse, it's like a huge crater. Stafford Street, Walsall. Photo: Peter R Downing "Thankfully nobody has been injured as a result, the road's really really busy usually. Advertising "Hopefully it gets sorted out as quickly as possible." Earlier this morning I reported the road in Stafford Street was sinking. It appears to be a collapsed sewer that's caused the problem. Please avoid this area. pic.twitter.com/HbCVy28pJT — Matt Ward (@MWWalsall) May 21, 2020 A spokesman for Walsall Council said: "Our Highways Team are attending to a void that has opened up on Stafford Street in Walsall.
