A giant sinkhole which opened on a road in Manchester has stoked the creative curiosity of Twitter users, many coming up with imaginative suggestions for what could be residing inside the mysterious chasm.
The sinkhole, estimated to be up to 40ft deep and 30ft wide, appeared on Mancunian Way on Friday afternoon and a large cordon was put up around it amid fears it was growing as cracks appeared in the ground around it.
Police had closed the road on Friday morning due to flooding and the hole, which one officer said could have "easily swallowed a car" developed just hours later.
The event sparked a flurry of photoshops, with people poking fun at the incident, which luckily hasn't resulted in any injuries.
