A large sinkhole has opened in a road at the Ozone leisure complex next to Oxford United’s Kassam Stadium.

The hole – reported to be about eight foot long and four foot wide – opened up during the storm on Saturday morning.

Frankie & Benny’s assistant manager Jack Finney said: “It’s behind where Gala Bingo is and opened up during the storms.

“From what I have been told by some of our staff, it appears to be getting bigger.”

Hey Oxford Mail, are you sure this isn't a photo of the new Half-Olympic swimming pond at Blackbird Leys?

'BREAKING News'...Ahahaha...ha
aaha....aah. I heard this was actually caused by Oxford United's last try on goal. I can only hope Jack Finney and @GrundyOxford are both safe and well.

Shame it can't swallow up the stadium then we could rebuild a proper ground for the fans with a name synonymous with the club and not the owner of the complex who has nothing to do with OUFC
