An emergency road closure will be in place for almost a week after a water main burst on the outskirts of Ipswich. 

The Street in Tuddenham St Martin, near The Fountain pub, will be closed until Thursday, April 7 to allow emergency works to take place. 

Some bus services are being diverted to avoid the problem.

Ipswich Reds, which runs a number of bus services across Ipswich, said in a statement on their website: "Service 70 & 70A will therefore divert via Playford village instead of the usual route for the duration of this closure.

"We apologise to all customers affected by this diversion."
