Parking spaces have been reduced for folk living in a city street as the ground was dug up for works. 

Anglian Water put up signs on Monday requesting motorists not to park on the verge along Havers Road as it began work along the path in Tailors Row on Tuesday.

The works are to install smart meters at a paying customer's property and the footpath - which leads to Marriott's Way and Anderson's Meadow - remained open with access as normal.

An Anglian Water spokesman said on Tuesday: "These works will be in place for up to three days due to our permit duration.

"These works should not last the full three days. However we have this permit in place just in case we run in to any problems while working."

He confirmed the work was completed mid-afternoon on Tuesday when the site was cleared.

Homeowners often park along the adjacent verge in Havers Road to access properties in Hemming Way and Tailors Row.
