Aerial shots of the 15ft-deep hole that's closed the M2

A 15ft-deep sinkhole has opened in the central carriageway of the M2. The motorway is closed in both directions between junctions 5 and 6 - that's between Sittingbourne and Faversham.

The Highways Agency has diversions in place, but say there will be long tailbacks in both directions.
