MOTORIST Grant Parker stands inside the 4ft-deep hole his car hit — and which left him thinking “hell had opened up”.

Grant, 46, said the road suddenly collapsed and his Volvo C30 sank.

He said: “It was unbelievable. You could see a tunnel under the road. I thought hell had opened up or something.”

He added: “I actually got in the hole, it went right down and you could see right under the road.

“The hole has been filled in but only recently.

“It was cordoned off for a while because they couldn’t move any cars because the road was unsafe.”

Fortunately Grant was able to reverse out and take the car to a garage for repairs.

He said he’s already spent £200 having work done to his vehicle and is yet to hear whether insurance will cover the costs.

Council officials in York said the hole was caused by the collapse of a sewer and it has since been filled in.

 Workers from Yorkshire Water, which is responsible for York's sewage system, have filled the hole in since it appeared on March 25
