An Anglian Water spokeswoman said: “Our teams are fixing a burst water main on Piperell Way in Haverhill, which has caused a leak.

"Customers’ water supply should not currently be affected, but some customers may experience a short interruption or period of low pressure later today while we carry out this important repair.

"In order to keep our engineers and other road users safe, we’ll need to close Piperell Way while we do this work. We’d like to thank everyone for their patience.”
