A woman is in hospital after the pavement beneath her feet opened up on a west London street.

Police and ambulance services were called to the site in Fulham’s North End Road at 8.40am on Thursday.

Christina Lown, 32, is the manager of a nearby branch of Cancer Research. Arriving just after the incident happened, she told Huffington Post UK: “A woman fell into a hole, the pavement opened up underneath her, the ground just gave way.

“I didn’t see a pram or a buggy but the whole area is cordoned off now.”

She added: "It just happened! Loud scream and all I could see was the pram. Ambulance and fire on the way to get her out. Scary. V v scary."
