THIS picture of a sinkhole at Middle Chine beach in Bournemouth has been sent in by a Daily Echo reader, after we featured a story about a man who fell down one.

The man, Steven Rushton, fell down the sinkhole in the same part of Bournemouth beach last weekend.

Steven, who at 6ft 2ins, struggled to get out of the water filled hole, says a child could easily be killed by the hidden threat.

Water came up to his chest and there was quicksand at the bottom, he said.

The 62-year-old fell into the hole while walking along the sea shore at Middle Chine.

Now Echo reader Russ Collins has sent in his photograph.

Russ said: "In reference to the article about the guy falling down the sinkhole I found this one a couple days ago.

"I don't know if it's the same one and think it was opposite Middle Chine.

"It was definitely three or four foot deep and as you see in the photo there was a slight whirlpool effect."
