Businesses and properties in the area have lost water supply.

Anglian Water predicted that the burst main would be fixed by around midday on Monday, March 5.

Anglian Water says properties will be without water or have reduced pressure in the area.

They said in a statement: “We’re working to repair a burst water main in your area so that we can get your supply back to normal as soon as possible, but it’s proving to be a complex job that is taking longer than we had originally hoped.

“This should now be completed by midday on Monday, March 5.”
