A sinkhole has appeared on Clevedon Road possibly due to tunnelling activities by escaping prisoners from the neighbouring Horfield Prison. I would suggest an emergency response unit is sent to the scene straight way to investigate and fill in the hole before the prisoners potentially climb out. This hole is also a health and safety risk for the school children in the neighbouring Bishop Road Primary School and other road users as there is no pavement on this stretch of road.
