Water supplies are to be cut off overnight in parts of March while engineers tackle a major leak.
Water supplies returned to normal today after Anglian Water worked into the night tackling and fixing a massive water leak under March town bridge.
The burst main, on the 165-year-old town bridge at the end of Broad Street, was reported on Monday. Tonnes of water cascaded from beneath it at the time, however what caused the outage is unknown.
The Mayor of March, Councillor Rob Skoulding, said: “Anglian Water was hard at work on Monday night and has done a brilliant job.
“Broad Street is back open now and ready for business.”
