Fed up residents have created a hilarious music video dedicated to a huge sinkhole outside her house that hasn't been fixed for over 600 days.

Ally Burrows claims that Cheshire East Council told her that the giant sinkhole outside her home would be fixed two days after it appeared in February 2020.

But, more than 600 days later, the large hole in the road on Hobson Road in Macclesfield, Cheshire, still hasn't been fixed.

The music teacher has documented the moment the hole first appeared and was the size of a pothole.

But after leaving unfixed for over 19 months, the hole has now expanded to a sinkhole which Ally says could fit 'several bodies and maybe a Fiat 500 if the rats moved out'.

Speaking today, Ally said: 'The whole thing is just ridiculous. To take almost two years to fix it is absurd. We've been told that the repair process is complicated but that it remains the council's 'top priority'.

'We keep being told that they're looking into it, but there's been no workmen here in a year, aside from two who arrived on day 600 just to clear some weeds from the kerb.

'There are now rats living in the hole and a tomato plant is now growing. There's a gas and electrical main running through the hole as well.

'The gas pipe however is being held up with three scaffolding planks and some tape, whilst there's an exposed electrical cable also in there - not to mention the exposed sewage at the bottom.

'Eventually, the rats are going to chew through those cables and that wood.'

Ally has now created a music video with the help of local musician Luke Stevenson dedicated to the saga after being unable to access her driveway.

The council has closed the road and barricaded off the hole for safety reasons until it is fixed
