Massive sinkhole opens in the Peak District

A massive sinkhole has opened over old mine workings in the Peak District.

Local caver Mark Noble who filmed video of the hole told ITV News: "There are old mine workings directly below the sinkhole with huge cavities left, where the old mine was extracting lead centuries ago.

"The modern Milldam Mine is working at a much greater depth in the area of the sinkhole, but its collapse does not appear to have had a great impact on the mine."
