A ROAD closure caused by flooding on Tuesday has been fixed by United Utilities engineers.

A spokeswoman for United Utilities said engineers had worked through the night after having to dig up part of Queen’s Square, in Rawtenstall, to fix the problem.

She said: “We managed to reopen the road at 6am today), so hopefully everything will be back to normal.

“But the extra lane closure was cleared this morning.

“We understand how difficult it was for people because it was at such a crucial road junction.

“We would like to say a big apology to people for the extra disruption, but also thanks for their patience.”

The major long-term sewer works which were being done are still ongoing and the lane that was already shut on the roundabout remains closed.

Temporary traffic lights are also in place.
