Authorities in North Yorkshire have been looking at temporary solutions to get people affected by the Ripon sinkhole back in their homes.

The 50 foot void appeared in the back garden of a property on Magdelens Road on Wednesday November 9.

A sewer has been compromised by hole with representatives from the utility services are currently on site evaluating options.

An assessment of the ground conditions by the British Geological Survey on Friday November 11 ascertained that the sinkhole remains a risk, and there is the potential for further slippage around the hole.
