These 2 holes have been there for several months, gradually getting bigger. Thames Water are digging up o/s my address re fixing the stop cock. I just asked spoke to them and they advised that the holes are a rats nest, and there are loads and loads of rats there which just ran out as they were digging, therefore there is a nest there. My neighbour at number 26 also has a hole in the pavement which he has already reported. The larger hole is about 3 ft from where Thames Water are digging.
