ANOTHER sinkhole has opened up in Newport according to reports from the local councillor.

The hole, which is located at the end of Jenkins Street, in the Lliswerry area of the city, is not far from St Andrew's Primary School.

"We will keep you updated."

This is not the first case of such a phenomenon occuring in the city.

A sinkhole opened up on Cromwell Road, Lliswerry, in September of last year, causing traffic chaos in the area.

In this instance, the cause of the sinkhole was discovered to be a bricked culvert carrying an historic water course running under the carriageway.

A spokesperson for Newport City Council said: "Newport City Council and Dwr Cymru Welsh Walter are currently investigating what has caused the hole.
"It has been cordoned off for the safety of the public."
