WARNING – DRIVERS ADVISED TO BE CAUTIOUS AS SINK HOLE APPEARS AT THE JUNCTION ON CHURCH STREET


Britain has been struck by a heatwave over the past couple of weeks, it’s been reported as one of the hottest and longest heatwaves in UK history.

As the nation swelters through the heatwave there is no sign of the heat relenting with forecasters predicting that certain areas in the UK could hit 33°C by Sunday.

With temperatures reaching all time highs across the UK, the heat is causing disasters on Britain’s roads. In fact, it has been so hot that the heat has caused roads to start melting in some parts of the UK. In Newbury, West Buckinghamshire it has been reported that a bin lorry has sunk into the tarmac in the road.

It now appears that Bacup is getting its fair share of disaster on its roads.

Local resident, Mark Newell, posted a picture in the FaceBook group ‘Bacup Past and Present’ showing what appears to be a small hole appearing in the road, at the junction, off of Church Street.

The hole is rather small but some residents are concerned that the hole may become bigger as the tarmac around the hole appears to be weak.

Concerned locals have reported the hole to the highway department as they fear it may become a large sinkhole if not tended to.

While the hole has been reported to the council, local residents are advised to be cautious and drive safe if you are travelling past the junction on Church Street.
