Australian sinkhole: Campers' lucky escape at Rainbow Beach

Campers at Queensland's Rainbow Beach have had a lucky escape after a large sinkhole opened up overnight.

No injuries have been reported but the hole swallowed up a caravan, car and tents.

Local media has reported that it is the second sinkhole at the site in four years and rangers have warned people to stay away in case it expands.
