Police close Central Avenue in West Bridgford after sewage leak

Police closed Central Avenue in West Bridgford temporarily this afternoon after a sewage leak.

A Nottinghamshire Police officer said that they were called because of what appears to be a significant leak by the bus stops in the avenue. Witnesses said the water level had risen to a few inches high but had subsided soon afterwards.

Severn Trent Water had been working on the site earlier today.

The substance is foul-smelling and is thought to be a sewage leak from drains and manholes on the road.
