UNITED Utilities say they are aware of a leaking main in the town centre that has been gushing water onto the road.

The leak underneath Bridge Foot roundabout has been flowing for the past day.

A United Utilities spokesman said: "The leak is on an old 20in water main. We can't shut it down immediately as it supplies a lot of factories in the area.

"It isn't causing supply issues and clearing the road gullies we have managed to get rid of the surface water on the road.

"The water will continue to run for a few days before we can have a controlled closure of the main."

The work is expected to take up to a week to complete but work will be based on the grassed part of the roundabout and not on the road.
