A burst water main is affecting traffic on a York road this afternoon (Wednesday, 22 November).

First York buses are unable to serve Low Poppleton Lane and are diverting along Boroughbridge Road.

A Yorkshire Water spokesperson said: “Yorkshire Water carried out repairs on Low Poppleton Lane in York yesterday, following a burst.

“A road closure was put in place to allow the work to be completed safely, and this has been completed.

“We’d like to thank customers for their patience during this time.”
