TWO water pipes have burst in Burnley.

United Utilities (UU) has confirmed one pipe had burst in River Drive and the second in South Drive at around 10.40am.

A UU spokesman said those in BB12 postcode will be affected.

The spokesman said: "You may have noticed that your water is coming out of your tap slower than usual or may have gone off altogether.

"Our team of engineers have collected the necessary equipment to carry out the repairs to the burst water main on South Drive.

"They will be on site as soon as possible and repairs will commence as soon as it is safe to do so.

"We’re sorry for the disruption and we’ll try and get things back to normal as soon as we can."
