Hole opens up in Fareham

EMERGENCY work was carried out in Fareham after a large hole appeared in the ground.

The hole appeared this afternoon above a sewage pipe at Oxleys Coppice on Rowan Way, Titchfield, pulling in surrounding trees.

Workers from Southern Water were quickly called to the scene.

A Southern Water spokesman said: “We believe it may have been caused by a break in the sewer pipe which, over time, has pulled the soil into the pipe, undermining the ground.

“We have a team on site making the area safe. Customers' services are not affected.”

Titchfield Councillor Connie Hockley, said: “This is of great concern and the relevant authorities will be dealing with the issue.”
