A burst water main has flooded a busy main road in Bromley.

The A21 Bromley Common is partially blocked in both directions and traffic is moving very slowly between Southlands Road and Homesdale Road, Traffic England advised.

A spokesperson for Thames Water said: "We’re sorry to customers in and around Bromley this afternoon, who may currently be experiencing low pressure, or no water.

"We have a team on site who are working to stop the flow and start the repair."

The flooding had caused "chaos" and was "like a river", Ben Toovey told the News Shopper.

Coopers secondary school in Hawkwood Lane was forced to close after its water supply was cut off. Students were sent home at 12.40pm. 

A spokesperson for the school said: "Students that are on trips are unaffected and return times are unchanged."
