A BURST water main has shut a road in Evesham town centre.

Littleworth Street was closed between Bewdley Street and West Street by Worcestershire County Council for a maximum of five days from Monday (July 19) to facilitate repairs.

Pedestrian access will still be maintained but vehicles will need to use Bewdley Street, Henry Street and West Street as an alternative.

Access to premises along the blocked road will be maintained.

The notice anticipates the repairs will only take three days, meaning the road could be reopened by Thursday.
