A major road has been closed in Wooburn Green this afternoon after a sinkhole has emerged.

When a reporter from the Bucks Free Press visited the scene, Holtspur Lane was closed to allow workers to examine the issue and begin repair work.

A Transport for Bucks spokesperson said: "Woburn Green Lane, Holtspur, is currently closed to investigate a sink hole which appeared in the footway and has now extended to the carriageway.

"The closure is in place whilst we investigate and make the area safe.

"We will reopen the road as soon as possible; however we have needed to take these steps for safety reasons."
