There are fears that a house will collapse after a crater, caused by a hole, opened up in an Essex family's driveway.
The family have had to take down their Christmas decorations and have now moved into a hotel.
The crater, which is the remains of a cave dug out by Britons hiding from invading Danes in the 1st Century, first appeared as a small hole in the front garden in Grays in Essex on Tuesday.
However it has been growing, disrupting the Coldham family's gas and electricity.
There is also water in the hole, causing the crater to widen even faster.
Despite efforts by the council and engineers, they have said that nothing can be done until the crater stops widening.
