Burst main leaves dozens of homes without water
SUTTON Primary School was forced to close on Friday and dozens of homes were left without water after a water main burst in the village.
According to Anglian Water, up to 90 homes in the northern end of the village were without water after a pipe in the Mepal Road area burst in the early hours of the morning.
Pupils were sent home from school shortly after 8.30am after it was discovered that the supply had been lost.
Engineers had managed to return the supply to normal by 3pm.
The news came less than 24hours after a water main burst in Stretham, spilling hundreds of litres of water on the A1123 and causing lengthy traffic tailbacks.
