A section of Sea Street in Herne Bay near the Jewson building yard is cordoned off while highways engineers work to fix it.

Kent Highways were called at about 4pm to reports of "a partial collapse" in the road.

The hole is about 2ft wide but larger underneath

Police are also on the scene and traffic cones have been placed around the crater.

The hole is about 80cm deep and 40cm wide, but as much as four metres of the road will need to be repaired.
