Flooding in Barrow
Last updated at 11:54, Wednesday, 12 June 2013
THE emergency services were called out to Abbey Road in Barrow at the junction with Dalton Lane this afternoon.
At around 2.45pm, the police and fire service were made aware of a burst water mains pipe in Abbey Road.
Traffic was being delayed on the road due to surface water, and officers worked to ease congestion.
Water company United Utilities attended the incident and shut the water off in order to carry out repairs to the pipe.
Barrow fire watch manager Mark Roach said it was initially feared that the water could flood the nearby Furness Abbey, but most of the water was running into the nearby Red River.
United Utilities has confirmed that some houses in Dalton Lane have had their water switched off whilst the problem is solved, with engineers at the scene.
