We have identified a burst on a 9" main in Ditchling Road, Brighton and are just about to begin repairs.
Around 1,200 customers have been affected in the Ditchling and Hollingdean area as we had to shut off the valve in order to carry out the repair. All of our customers in these areas should now be back in supply.
We have closed one lane of Ditchling Road while we carry out the repair and as a result traffic is likely to be slower than usual due to these traffic restrictions. This will be in place over night and into the morning.
We would urge people to find an alternative route if possible to help ease congestion and we'll continue to work alongside our colleagues in the emergency services to ensure public safety.
We will provide updates and information as the situation progresses and would like to thank our customers for their patience while we work to carry out this emergency repair
