Roads turn into rivers in London after a water main burst

Roads turn into rivers in London after a water main burst.

A road has turned into a river after the waters that have also caused flooding in London, as a result of the explosion of a main water supply pipe.

Multiple road closures have been put in place as residents are asked to move “to a higher level” in a north London borough.

Footage from the scene shows water at Hornsey and Tollington Road in Holloway, in the north London borough of Islington, above the level of car tyres.

There, also some cars and buses can be seen moving slowly.

Crews from Thames Water and the London Fire Brigade (LFB) could be seen wading through the water in wetsuits, with some workers ferrying local residents across the waters in inflatable rafts.

Emergency services were called to the scene just after 7am, the LFB said.

A Thames Water spokesman has told residents on social media that the supplier is aware of the incident and a team is on site.
