Part of a major road in a Suffolk town has closed due to a ‘substantial’ water leak.

A stretch of the A134 Springlands Way, in Sudbury, has shut while Anglian Water engineers repair the leak, which is near the junction of Grenville Road.

Suffolk Constabulary said cars were seen driving through the water but the road has since been closed.

The incident was reported to police at 6.13am, with engineers on the scene just after 7am.

It is not know at this time what caused the leak.
