A BURST pipe in Frome Road, Trowbridge caused disruption for motorists this afternoon.

Wessex Water are working to fix the burst pipe which had frozen and thawed in the aftermath of last week's extreme cold weather.

Temporary traffic lights have been put in place but traffic delays are expected as rush hour approaches.

A spokesman from Wessex Water said: "We are currently repairing a leak in Frome Road, which we don’t believe has affected our customers’ water supplies.

"We’re yet to establish the cause but freeze-thaw conditions can lead to an increase in burst pipes.

"We’re sorry for any inconvenience to road users while these repairs are carried out.
