Re: A car has fallen into a sinkhole in the car park of Craig Y Nos castle in the Brecon Beacons, Wales, UK.<br />
Luke Davies was surprised when he got a call from his father asking him to go up to the castle where his mother was working.<br />
He went under the impression that it was not that serious.<br />
The hole was about 18-20 feet at its deepest, and the car had fallen in bonnet-first and was wedged against the other side of the hole.<br />
"It must have happened within five to 10 minutes, Mr Davies, 30, from Coelbren in Powys, said.<br />
A visitor had seen it happen and alerted staff, who told his mother, Karen.<br />
The general manager managed to attach a tow rope to the car to prevent it from falling further.<br />
It is thought that the sinkhole has been caused by an underground stream of water, possibly leading to erosion under the overflow car park.<br />
Once the recovery vehicle arrived, they considered using a crane as they were concerned about further damaging the car.<br />
The door panels were damaged and one of the rear doors couldn't be opened.
