    Residents of the civil parish of Barming in Kent, England were celebrating Easter with their families when a part of Broomshaw Road suddenly collapsed, leaving them without water, media reported.

    After a part of the road surface broke down in the region on Easter Sunday, some 30 homes were left without water supplies.

    "It was a bit of a shock. We had a family day and couldn't use any water," local resident Russ Palmer said, cited by the BBC.

    A large sinkhole that opened in the road as result of an accident affected some 30 local households.
