07:03 06 August 2014


Drivers are continuing to face delays this morning after a burst water main last night caused flooding on the B1079 at Burgh, near Grundisburgh.

The problem was reported on Tuesday evening and by midnight Anglian Water experts were at the scene, setting up temporary traffic lights to help keep vehicles moving through the area while the issue is assessed and resolved.

Police reported that delays were expected throughout the night and into Wednesday morning.
