A burst water main on a Norwich road has led to buses having to take an alternative route.

The burst main on Waterloo Road, near the Alma Terrace and Starling Road junctions, means the road is partially closed to traffic.

Due to this the First Norfolk & Suffolk orange line services 21 and 22 are diverting via Constitution Hill and Woodcock Road until May 8.

This means buses will not call at stops on Angel Road and south of the Woodcock Road roundabout on Catton Grove Road.

Anglian Water has confirmed its technicians are dealing with the burst main.
