West Ham fans are facing a scramble to make it inside the Boleyn Ground for their clash with Swansea after a sinkhole opened up nearby.

Barking Road is closed and buses have been diverted after the sinkhole appeared.

Fans have reported delays getting to the Boleyn Ground for what will be their team’s penultimate home match at the venue before they relocate to the Olympic Stadium next season.
