Huge sinkhole near World Cup stadium

Residents have been evacuated from a favela near one of Brazil's World Cup stadiums, after a huge sinkhole opened up.

Footage shows partially-collapsed homes perched on the edge of the crater in Natal, already filled with household appliances, furniture and vehicles.

The hole is four miles (6.5km) from the Arena das Dunas stadium, which will host the Group D match between Italy and Uruguay on Tuesday.

The sinkhole opened up earlier this week after record rainfall, but has continued to grow since.
