If water from Straitgate can do this now - just think if a quarry were there

Water from one of the four watercourses originating at Straitgate has today closed the road between Ottery St Mary and West Hill. The road may be closed for several weeks. The Express and Echo writes:
A large hole has appeared on an East Devon road.
The road between Westhill and Ottery has been closed at Foxenhole Mill because of the collapsed culvert.
Police were called to the scene early this morning and on arrival highways crews were made aware.
The hole is described as 2ft by 3ft on the surface and 15ft by 10ft underneath.
