Detroit sinkhole converted into fishing hole

A sinkhole in a residential street has been transformed into a fishing hole, according to US media reports.

Residents in the Detroit neighbourhood filled the hole with fish after waiting almost four years for the site to be repaired.

The fishing hole now contains blue gill, goldfish and carp, while a nearby broken water main continues to feed water into the area.

The initial cause of the 6ft by 30ft sinkhole remains unclear.
