A burst water main is causing traffic delays in a Sheffield suburb today.

Parts of Spital Hill, Burngreave, were under water this morning, slowing down traffic.

The water supply in the area was also affected.

Yorkshire Water said a water main in Burngreave Road burst, flooding part of Spital Hill.

The spokesman added: "We would like to apologise to residents in the Spital Hill area whose water supplies were disrupted this morning due to a burst water pipe on Burngreave Road. "This has been quickly investigated and water supplies have successfully returned to all homes and businesses affected.

"To enable us to carry out road works to repair the burst pipe, temporary traffic lights have been put in place and will be removed as soon as the repair is complete. "
