A busy road in Corby has been closed because of a burst water main.

Oakley Road, close to the Esso garage, is currently flooded with debris across the road.

Police have advised motorists to avoid the area with detours via Burghley Drive and Cecil Drive.

A substantial amount of water is coming up on to the carriageway.

Due to the scale of the burst, Tarmac debris is also shooting up on to the carriageway.
