Sinkhole begins to swallow Ipswich backyard

Footage from the 9NEWS helicopter showed the sinkhole in the Basin Pocket backyard.

An elderly couple should not fear their house west of Brisbane will be swallowed by a sinkhole after their backyard started to cave in down a century-old mine shaft.

Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale has told AAP that he has assured owners Lyn and Ray McKay their house will not disappear overnight and engineers are confident of fixing the “sinkhole” which is some six to eight metres in diameter and full of water.

“It will get worse for the next couple of hours. It’s an exploratory shaft that goes down about 100 metres and there’s no need to panic about a neighbourhood falling in, and we will take all the steps to get Lyn and Ray back in their house.”

A sinkhole has begun swallowing up an elderly couple’s backyard after a century-old mine shaft caved in.
Lyn and Ray McKay have been assured that their Basin Pocket home in the Queenland town of Ipswich won’t disappear, but ‘it will get worse for the next couple of hours.’
Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale said the sinkhole should be isolated to the couple’s property:
‘It’s an exploratory shaft that goes down about 100 metres and there’s no need to panic about a neighbourhood falling in.’

Mr Pisasale visited the property on Tuesday where he met with local engineers who are confident of fixing the ‘sinkhole’ which is six to eight metres in diameter and full of water.
Nine Network has released aerial footage of the backyard sinkhole caving in as water gushes from side to side.
