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.

The event sparked a flurry of photoshops, with people poking fun at the incident, which luckily hasn't resulted in any injuries.

Famed Photoshopper 'General Boles' also chipped in with his thoughts on how the four Labour leadership hopefuls might have reacted to the sinkhole news.
