A burst water main is disrupting traffic in a Norfolk town as a road has been left part submerged.

Bridge Road in Great Yarmouth was left underwater as the main was left spewing out water this morning.

The road outside Matalan, next to Haven Bridge, is undergoing emergency works by Essex & Suffolk Water after they were called to the site just after 7am. 

Drivers in the area are seeing delays as roadworks are undergone to fix the pipe.

A spokesman for Essex & Suffolk Water said: “We were made aware of the burst shortly before 7am and were on site within an hour.

"The water main has been isolated and customers’ supplies have not been affected.

"Repairs are being carried out and traffic management will be in place to ensure the road remains safe until this is completed.

“We apologise for the impact this has had, with water escaping onto the road.

"This has now largely drained away and we would like to thank people for their patience while we complete the repair.”
