A family in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire have been left in shock after a giant sinkhole opened up in their driveway swallowing their daughter’s car in the process. The family are now staying with friends as they wait for experts to confirm that their house is safe or needs to be condemned.

The teenager, Zoe Smith’s Volkswagen Lupo was engulfed by the 15 foot wide and 30 foot deep hole when it appeared without warning overnight. The teenager went to leave the family home and realised that her car wasn’t there. She went to the kitchen window and saw the big crater in the driveway.

Zoe’s parent’s said that she was ‘gutted’ about the car but they were thankful that she wasn’t in it when the driveway collapsed. Her parent’s told the press, “She got herself all ready, got to the door, and saw her car wasn’t there.” Adding, “She thought that was a bit weird … so she went round to the kitchen window and then she saw the crater and just started screaming.”

It is not known where the sinkhole came from, but it is believed to be a result of the heavy rain and flooding that the county has had over the past few months.

The family are currently saying with friends while the insurance company assesses the stability of their house.
