Spare a thought for this Ukrainian car owner, his 4x4 fell into a pothole after the road suddenly collapsed underneath the vehicle. According to media reports Gordey Efremov was travelling home in his Lada Niva in Dnipropetrovsk when the ground vanished underneath him.

He told the local newspaper: "Because of the rain, traffic was going slowly anyway and then when the car in front of me stopped I put on the brakes, to slow down.

"Then I suddenly got this sinking feeling and it was disappearing into the road. The car tipped onto its side and muddy waters started to flood in through the air vents and door.

"I had to open the window above and climb out where some people helped me onto the street. I escaped without a scratch but that's more than can be said from the car which was pretty badly broken up."
