A burst water main has closed City Road near to the Old Street roundabout this morning.

The road is closed in both directions between the roundabout and Britannia Walk and has been since before 6am.

Thames Water tweeted just before 7am: “We’re sorry for the disruption on City Road, this is due to a burst water pipe. Our team are working hard to fix this and have everything back to normal as quickly as possible.”
