Anglian Water has identified a burst water main in Bushmead Road in Eaton Socon and the road is now closed.

The burst water main has caused issues for many residents in Eaton Socon, Eaton Ford and surrounding areas of St Neots.

An Anglian Water spokesperson said, “We are currently working to repair a burst water main on Bushmead Road in St Neots.

“We are hoping to have the repair completed by the end of today (Tuesday) and would like to apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.

“Unfortunately, the burst has caused significant damage to the road surface and once the repair to the pipe has been completed, we will start the work to repair the road.

“A diversion is in place while Bushmead Road is closed, and we would like to thank everyone for their patience while we continue this work.”

“Our engineers are classed as key workers and are continuing to do their jobs to find and fix problems like this and get things back to normal.
