Suffolk police officers were called-out early this morning to tape off part of a village which had flooded following a water main problem.

A force spokesman confirmed it received calls from people in Shotley about the flooding at around 5.15am.

“The water board has been advised and we’ve placed some tape around the area,” the spokesman added.

Anglian Water’s website lists a “mains repair” job in Shotely at the B1456, which it expects to repair today.

An Anglian Water spokesperson said: ”Our teams are currently on their way to repair a burst water main on The Street in Shotley.

“Some customers may experience low water pressure while we complete the repair but we are using tankers to pump water into the network and keep taps running while the work is completed.

“There will be some traffic lights in place on The Street, while our engineers make the repair, which we hope to complete later today.
