In the news yesterday and today (Oh, and in the Liverpool Echo a week ago) is an article telling of a huge sinkhole suddenly opening up in the new dock (Liverpool 2).

According to the reports, a hole has appeared in the dock wall and has been sealed off.

A civil engineer Prof from Liverpool University has said he believes the construction did not use enough piles. And he warns that simply plugging the hole may cause further collapses.

Oh dear!
