A road has been flooded in Farnborough after a water main burst on Monday evening.

South East Water has sent technicians to the junction of Prospect Avenue and Sand Hill after a 10-inch water pipe was damaged at around 5.45pm.

The flooding has occurred next to Farnborough Sixth Form College.

Andrew Collins, distribution manager at South East Water, said: “We have isolated the burst to stop the water leaking and have teams on site who will be working throughout the night.

“Temporary traffic lights will be in place to ensure we undertake the repair safely and efficiently.

"Properties in the area may have experienced low water pressure as a result of this burst, however we anticipate full supplies will be restored shortly.

“I would like to thank all those affected for their patience and co-operation while this emergency repair work takes place.”
