The main road between two towns is closed after a water main burst.

Engineers from Anglian Water have been called to the B1113, between Stowmarket and Needham Market.

A police spokesman said the road was shut in both directions. Diversions are in operation.

Antony Innes, from Anglian Water, said: “We’re sorry for any inconvenience caused to customers and road users after a burst water main damaged the road surface, meaning the Needham Road has been closed.

“Unfortunately, this road will remain closed for a few days while the large 15 inch diameter pipe is repaired and the damaged road surface is fixed. A diversion is in place.

“We were alerted to the burst main shortly after 5am this morning and had engineers on site to stop the flow of water by 6:30 am. No customers should have lost water supply or have noticed a drop in pressure.”

Relatives of Corrie McKeague have retraced his last known steps in Bury St Edmunds to mark the year anniversary of his disappearance.

Among the crowd taking part in Sunday’s Great East Run was a special team of 91 white-vested fundraisers.

More than 2,400 runners took part in the inaugural Great East Run today with thousands more lining the route to wave them on.
