An east Norfolk village road is closed both ways after a burst water main damaged the road surface.

Old Chapel Road in Freethorpe has been shut between Chapelfield and Norwich Road today for repair work, a day after a burst pipe caused damage to the road surface.

A spokesman for Anglian Water said the main was repaired yesterday but due to the location of the work, Old Chapel Road needed to be closed.

He said: 'A small number of customers were affected during the work, but the 3' pipe was quickly repaired.

'The road surface is being fully repaired during today and will reopen shortly.
