Water is gushing out of a pavement and flooding the road at Sherbourne Avenue.
The constant pressurised flow is so significant that it is now flowing into the adjoining Maybrick Drive.
Southern Water have been alerted to the incident and they have mobilised an inspector to the scene.
Residents should not be alarmed if they find they have no supply or a low pressure supply. Once repairs have been completed the water may be discoloured for a time – this is to be expected.
