Car ‘disappears’ down sinkhole in Etterbeek

A sinkhole in the Patrijzenstraat in Etterbeek (Brussels) swallowed a car early this morning.  The sinkhole was caused by a leak in the water mains.

The car was parked at the time and fortunately nobody was in the vehicle when it slipped away.  The Brussels fire service attended the scene and cordoned off the street until the leak could be sorted.
