Hole appears in ground near beach in Aberystwyth

A hole big enough to fit a "standard family car" in has appeared in ground next to a beach car park.

The crater was discovered at Tan-y-Bwlch, in Aberystwyth, on Tuesday morning.

Outdoor activity instructor Mike Hirst filmed the hole while he was out walking.

The 51-year-old said: "You would get a standard family car in."

Ceredigion council estimated the gap was 3m (9.8ft) deep. A spokesman said they had made the area safe.
