The hole opened up in Angel Road on Thursday, December 5, taking a delivery van with it.

Repairs started the following day and the road was closed over the weekend.

But Anglian Water said the road could stay closed until Friday, December 13 as the job of fixing the sinkhole was going to bigger than originally anticipated.
