The moment an enormous sinkhole opened up in a residential neighbourhood of north-east Baltimore in the US has been caught on camera.

Measuring a block long, the sinkhole sucked in several cars and forced the evacuation of a row of houses on Wednesday.

Heavy rain had been falling in the state of Maryland in the hours leading up to the incident.

Nick Gowing reports.
