Firefighters were called to examine the hole on Sunday but there was nobody in the vehicle

A sinkhole measuring 30ft (9m) deep has opened up on the driveway of a house in High Wycombe and swallowed a car.

Nobody was inside the VW Lupo when the ground on Main Road in Walter's Ash gave way.

The vehicle is still at the bottom covered in rubble.

Firefighters said the hole was about 15ft (4.5m) diameter but left the scene after discovering no-one was inside. Wycombe District Council will now have to decide what steps to take next.
