Six-metre deep sinkhole on Rome street

Second sinkhole to open on Rome's Via Ambrosini in six months.

A sinkhole measuring six metres deep opened up on Via Ambrosini in the Montagnola neighbourhood of southern Rome on 24 May. There were no injuries.
This is the second such incident on the same street in six months after a four-metre-deep chasm opened up in late November.
The sinkhole is the latest in a string of recent cases involving Rome streets caving in, regularly swallowing cars in the process.

A street in Rome's north-west suburb Balduina collapsed in February.

The most serious recent case involved a street collapsing into a construction site in the city's north-west suburb Balduina in February, leading to the evacuation of nearby residents.
