A sinkhole opened up on a major street in Montreal, Canada following a huge rally to protest a government plan to raise tuition costs.

The protests which have lasted over 100 days, have seen many people arrested and have attracted high-profile celebrities such as filmmaker Michael Moore and the band Arcade Fire.

A new law limiting the right to demonstrate, has increased the number of protesters.

No injuries were reported when the four square meter (43 square feet) hole opened up.
