Portsmouth Water is working to seal a burst pipe close to the junction linking Havant Road (A3023) and Victoria Road on Hayling Island.

The incident – which the firm reported it was attending at 8.30am – has caused flooding along the A3023, which is the only way on and off the island by car.

A spokesperson for Portsmouth Water said engineers are assessing the burst, and could fix the damaged pipe this morning or later this evening.
