A village road has been closed after a large hole appeared.
Part of Oxford Road in Garsington, Oxfordshire is shut for safety reasons after some of the surface collapsed.
The hole was not strictly a sinkhole as it did not appear to be "naturally occurring", a Thames Water spokeswoman said. The cause is not yet known.
Engineers are at the scene conducting investigations before carrying out repairs. Thames Travel said its bus services would be affected.
A spokesman from Oxfordshire County Council said: "We have closed this section of Oxford Road for safety reasons and are speaking with Thames Water in order to identify the cause and carrying out repairs as soon as possible."
T1: 1/2: We have received reports that there is sinkhole on Pettiwell, the road we are currently using for our T1 diversions. Unfortunately, due to the size and location of the sinkhole, we are unable to operate our vehicles along that road.— Thames Travel (@thames_travel) July 25, 2018
T1:2/2: This means that we cannot serve Garsington until further notice. Passengers wishing to alight for Garsington are advised to use the bus stops located at the bottom of the Southend, on the B480. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.— Thames Travel (@thames_travel) July 25, 2018
