Riverside Drive has collapsed alongside the Garden Festival Site in Aigburth.
A nine foot deep hole about ten foot across has appeared which the council reckon will take six weeks to repair.
I went to visit it last night and the area is now a ghost town with all traffic unable to access the area apart from local residents.Police have cordoned off the site while investigations begin.
There is also a giant hole which has appeared in Priory wood next to Riverside Drive.Police tape and a barrier are closing it off to the public.
The Garden Festival Site is on a former landfill site so subsidence could be the cause or maybe a sewage pipe collapse.Let's hope no nasty toxic substances are being released into the environment.
