A huge sink hole swallowed a garden in West Yorkshire, forcing residents to flee their homes.

Shocking video footage filmed by Peter Kaszefko showed the devastation caused by the sinkhole, which surfaced at a house in Keighley on Sunday.

According to the fire service, the sinkhole was caused by flooding after a river burst its banks during Storm Eunice.

Firefighters evacuated nearby homes after the sinkhole caused chaos.

In the clip, Peter films people in safety vests in front of the damaged house.

As he moves to the back of the house, on A huge crater appears where there used to be a garden.

Metal pipes and hoses stick out of the wet ground with broken concrete tiles.

Half of the garden appears to slide down to the river with slab pieces at the bottom of the pit.

A shed can be seen inches from falling down with the rest of the back gardens of neighboring houses.

Online, many people expressed sympathy for the plight of homeowners affected by the sinkhole.

Louise said: “I really hope these people have good families and friends to help and money to help, so sad.”

Owen Bowers added, “Looks like a mini landslide.”

Bev Cotton said, ‘Oh god, these poor people. What a horrible, unpredictable thing that happened.

The size of the sinkhole is unclear, but rescue services said it was formed due to flood water brought by Storm Eunice as it ravaged Britain.

Britain faces a clean-up bill worth hundreds of millions after Storm Eunice wreaked havoc across the country on Friday, destroying homes, churches and landmarks.

The O2 Arena in London became one of the first casualties when part of its roof began to fall apart due to winds up to 122mph this morning as the capital was placed under an extremely rare Red Weather Alert.

Pictures taken on Friday night show how much of the £43million structure – once dubbed the Millennium Dome – had been left in ruins after being hit by the storm, which happened just once in a decade.

Elsewhere, scores of houses were either completely destroyed or had their roofs damaged or blown off, while many cars were crushed by falling trees and hit by flying debris – tragically at least four people died.

Meanwhile, at a power station in Kent, one of its chimneys collapsed and a church in Somerset lost its steeple.

Insurers told MailOnline they were being inundated with calls from customers wanting to report damage to their property – with one company alone seeing a more than 400 per cent surge in inquiries.
