Drivers were forced to drive through up to a foot of water at Ashey Road just before The Pondarosa after the burst pipe sent water gushing down the road, formally a flood in a dip in the road.

The road has now been closed between Smallbrook roundabout and Brading Down Road to allow Clancydocwra, on behalf of Southern Water, to make repairs.
