Alyn Smith MP has shared a picture of a 'monster' of a sinkhole in Bridge of Allan.

The SNP MP for Stirling tweeted an image of the sinkhole cordoned off by the council and assured constituents that the matter was being looked into. 

He wrote: "I’m aware of this monster in Bridge of Allan. Glad nobody was hurt and, er, am glad Stirling Councillors are looking into it. It’ll be fixed soon."

Sinkholes tend to form when the ground underneath the road is eroded away by water, drilling, heavy traffic, and more. 

Alyn Smith was elected in 2019 as the MP for Stirling. He had previously served in the European Parliament.
