A BURST water main in Basildon has caused a huge flood at Broadmayne roundabout.

Traffic is being diverted and A132 Eastmayne is closed in both directions between Felmores and Ashlyns.

Macey Kavagnah, 24, of Ashlyns, said: "It's so bad, you can see the water spraying up really high and it's brought up all the ground.

"Someone better come out soon or some serious damage is going to be caused."


Another resident says she first saw the leak around 2.30pm and claims to have noticed a small leak at the roundabout yesterday.

Almost two hours on and there are no water engineers on the scene, althought police are present to divert traffic.

Essex and Suffolk Water has been contacted for comment.
