Disruption at Beeston Regis caused by a burst water main looks set to continue until Tuesday while workers fix the road.

A pipe on the A149 Cromer Road at Beeston Regis burst at about 5.30pm on Tuesday causing considerable damage and forcing traffic, including heavy goods vehicles, to be diverted along nearby Briton's Lane.

Anglia Water has fixed the water main and had hoped to have the road reopened by at the weekend.But following a meeting with its contractors and the Highways Agency the company said it would now have to replace 100sqm of the road surface to repair the damage caused when high-pressure water burst from the pipe.

Anglia Water spokesman Dan Baker said the road would not be reopened until Tuesday morning and diversions through the town would continue until then.
