Shirebrook homes without water

EMERGENCY teams were called out after a mains pipe burst in Shirebrook on Monday evening, leaving many homes without water.

Hot water was flowing down the road from Shirebrook Business Park after the 18 inch pipe burst at around 7.15pm.

Fire crews, Severn Trent and police attended and the road was closed from Station Road to Sports Direct.

Between 30 and 50 sand bags were used.

A spokesman for Derbyshire police said the road was still closed today while repairs took place.
