Engineers are continuing repairs after a water main burst in Thetford yesterday.

The fault on the water main in the Croxton Road area led to Thetford Academy sending pupils home as it closed due to the problem.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service and police were also called in to help with flooding on Fairfields.

Engineers from Anglian Water have returned to the area today to repair the road surface around the burst main – with the road expected to be closed for the rest of the week.

An Anglian Water spokesperson said: 'We're pleased to say the repair to the burst water main has now been completed and customer water supplies should be back to normal.
