A ROAD in Basildon has been closed this morning.

Courtauld Road has been closed near to Harvey Road this morning due to it being flooded, with the vast amount of the water settling near the roundabout next to Basildon Garden Centre.

Police have cordoned off the road from the roundabout and are advising motorists to seek other routes around the flooding.

Essex and Suffolk Water are carrying out emergency repairs to the water supplies after the burst.
