A BURST water main has led to Clatterford Shute in Carisbrooke being temporarily closed.

The shute, from its junction with Bowcombe Road to its junction with Millers Lane, will be closed for Southern Water to repair a 3in burst water main.

A diversion will affect Bowcombe Road, Clatterford Road, High Street, Cedar Hill, Whitcombe Road and Froglands Lane, and signs are in place.

Reasonable facilities will be provided to allow access to adjacent premises while the road is closed and the site made safe.
