This is definitely something you wouldn’t want to happen only yards from your home, that’s for sure.
A massive sinkhole has opened up in Cornwall, only metres away from someone’s house.
Mark Thomas captured footage via drone which shows a giant 300ft-gaping hole right next to a bungalow in Scorrier- an area with a history of mine workings.
It apparently appeared after a huge mineshaft collapsed right next to the property.

A massive mineshaft opens up under a garage at a house in Scorrier near Redruth in Cornwall. This shaft is truly massive and is approximately 300ft to water and god knows how deep from there!
Cornwall has a fair few abandoned mines, so every so often the old mineshafts create dangerous sinkholes.
Since experts started drilling to explore the depths of the mine, half a garage and a patio have disappeared into the hole.
So I can’t imagine them being able to sell on this house anytime soon.
