Engi­neers were called to the Lower High Street af­ter a wa­ter main burst and flooded the ring road.

South East Wa­ter sent the work­men to cor­don off the leak, which was caused by a six-inch hole in the pipes out­side The County Ho­tel pub on Fri­day morn­ing.

Dis­tri­bu­tion man­ager Mark Rice said: “On ar­rival our tech­ni­cian found that there was a leak on a six-inch di­am­e­ter wa­ter main and we sent our spe­cial­ist team to carry out a re­pair.

“Un­for­tu­nately, emer­gen­cies like this do hap­pen from time to time. We un­der­stand that the wa­ter leak did not af­fect sup­ply to our cus­tomers and the re­pairs were com­plete later in the af­ter­noon.”
