Residents in SE3, SE9 and SE18 are currently without water after a pipe burst in Eltham, south east London, flooding the street.

Thames Water say engineers are currently at the scene on Westhorne Avenue in Eltham trying to fix the issue, and will likely be working on the "complex repair" for several days into August.

The water pipe burst in SE9 on Sunday afternoon, with water pouring out and causing considerable flooding along the road.

One local, Sally Cudmore, managed to capture the flooding (footage above), and said "it was like driving through a river."

It appears residents in SE9, SE3 and SE18 have been affected by the burst, with low water pressure or no water at all in these postcodes.

Thames Water said: "Our engineers are continuing their work to fix a pipe which burst in SE9 on Sunday afternoon.

"We’re continuing to monitor local supplies to make sure we minimise any impact and are using a fleet of tankers to pump water into our local network and keep taps running.

News Shopper:

The pipe is beneath the A205 Westhorne Avenue, where we expect to be working on the complex repair for several days. Access to the southbound carriageway from the A2 remains closed – we apologise for the inconvenience to drivers.

"We know this has happened at a difficult time. We’ve answered the most common customer questions about coronavirus, including how we can provide extra help to those who need it most."

Due to water mains work, the A205 Westhorne Avenue is closed westbound and will likely remain that way for over a week into August.
