Water leak in Stamford High Street / St Paul's Street is fixed

A water leak at the end of Stamford High Street and St Paul's Street in Stamford was the result of a burst water main.

Some readers reported a 'smell of sewage' at the site of the leak, which turned into a torrent of water on Saturday (June 29).

Today (Monday July 1) it was confirmed that the leak was from a 'clean water' main pipe and that it had been fixed by engineers over the weekend.
