Sinkhole gets bigger in city plagued by giant craters

The latest mysterious sinkhole that has appeared in a Urals city has grown in size four-fold in just three months, officials have said.

First spotted on February 17 during routine observations around crater-hit Berezniki, in Perm Krai, it was found to be just five metres in diameter. The fifth hole to have been found in the town in a decade, it was later measured at 7.5metres.
