South Quay in Great Yarmouth should be re-opened to traffic on Monday morning.

MP Brandon Lewis contacted Essex and Suffolk Water regarding the burst water main and the subsequent effect it was having on the traffic in the town.

He said: 'They have advised me that the main has been repaired, they have been resurfacing the road and it is expected to reopen.'

The pavement will be partially open throughout the weekend as the team work on the damage caused, and will be fully open by Monday morning.

Mr Lewis said: 'I have stressed to them the effects this has had on residents and businesses in Great Yarmouth and have asked that they ensure that their infrastructure is properly maintained to avoid future occurrences.
