Mystery dip is not a sinkhole, say Gwalia
Residents have been told a large hole which has appeared in a shared garden is not a sinkhole.
Landlords Gwalia have reassured people living in Pier Street, and say they are trying to find out the cause.
One resident said: "It started out quite small, and people would put leaves and other stuff from gardening in the hole to fill it.
"But it's just keeps appearing, and it's been getting bigger.
"There is now quite a dip in the grass, and we don't know how deep it goes down.
"We don't know if it is a sinkhole"
The hole is approximately six foot in diameter, and has now been fenced off by Gwalia, as they attempt to find out the reason for its appearance.
Prof. Michael Williams, Gwalia's Chief Executive, said: "Gwalia is aware that for many years there has been a dip in the ground on land near Pier Street.
"Because of concerns expressed by a resident we have carefully inspected the area and fenced it off so we can monitor it more carefully. Our inspection confirmed that it is not the beginning of a sink hole and it is not getting any larger.
"However, to discover why the dip is there we will carry out more work and for that reason we have temporarily fenced off the area.
"I can assure readers that there were no wells or former wells on the land."
