State media releases surveillance video showing a sinkhole appearing in the middle of a busy intersection in eastern China.

A surveillance video that showed a sinkhole appearing at a busy intersection in Hangzhou, China, was released by state media on Saturday (April 23).

The video showed a police officer putting traffic cones around what appeared to be a crack in the road, diverting traffic around it.

Two minutes after the cones were in place, a sinkhole of about 20 square metres (215 square feet) appeared, state broadcaster CCTV said.

It added that there were no injuries, and no vehicles were damaged.
