Work is finally being carried out to repair a town centre car park in Market Harborough after part of it sank.

One corner of the huge Springfield Street site near Homebase suddenly began to collapse last November.

The area hit by subsidence was fenced off – denying shoppers at least 40 spaces in the busy car park.

One corner of the huge Springfield Street site near Homebase suddenly began to collapse last November.

The spot is now being repaired and resurfaced as more local shops and stores start to re-open after the four-month Covid-19 lockdown.

A private firm is responsible for maintaining the area of the car park affected.

The firm has not said what sparked the sinkhole or why it has taken nine months to tackle the problem.

Repair work should be finished by September.
