Sainsbury's in Quarry Wood, Aylesford leaves pothole in car park for a month

By Luke May

A sinkhole has closed part of a Sainsbury's car park for a month.

Around 24 car parking spaces have been cordoned off by trolleys at the Quarry Wood supermarket since April, but there are no repairs underway.

The supermarket chain says it is constantly assessing the sinkhole in Hermitage Lane.

The hole was first spotted a month ago and trolleys have been used to cordon off a section of the car park, while three trolleys surround the hole itself.

The cordon has closed the car park's jet wash, but the adjacent petrol station remains open.

Last year Hermitage Lane was blighted by traffic diverted away from a giant sinkhole in Barming.

A Sainsbury's spokeswoman said: "A small section of our Aylesford store car park is temporarily closed while we repair the area. We’re sorry for the inconvenience this may cause."
