It’s been just over a week since the sinkhole appeared on a popular footpath at Appley, as first reported by Island Echo. A man suffered minor injuries when his leg unexpectedly fell into the void whilst out on a walk.
Heras fencing has now been erected around the area to prevent Islanders falling into the hole, which has grown significantly. A point of interest plinth is now at risk of falling into the 10ft deep cavity.
The Isle of Wight Council previously said that remedial work would get underway as quickly as possible.
The cause is currently unknown.
