Shoppers have faced delays getting into and out of the Tesco store in Corby

Anglian Water is trying to fix the problem in Oakley Road, Corby, and a section of the road has been closed off while the work is undertaken.

But it has led to drivers having to queue to get into and out of the Tesco store, with some drivers reporting queuing for several hours to get out of the store car park over the weekend.

A spokesman for Anglian Water said: “We have a burst main to repair and to do this safely we have had to close the road.
