Disruption close to Colchester General Hospital will continue into Friday after a water pipe burst.
Workers from Anglia Water were sent out to Turner Road in the north of the city to fix a water pipe on Thursday morning.

First Essex have reported on Twitter that they expect the diversion to be in place for at least three days.

“Customers in the area should see their water pressure returning to normal but it may appear slightly cloudy. This is because of little air bubbles that have been trapped in the pipe whilst it was being repaired.
“If customers run their tap for a short time this should clear. It is harmless but this water can be collected in a bowl or watering can and used for watering plants.”
