Traffic is back flowing through Hebden Bridge after a leaking water main was repaired.

Works had been tkaing place on the main on Halifax Road at the junction with Heptonstall Road.

A Yorkshire Water spokesperson said: “We’d like to apologise to local residents and road users for any disruption they have suffered as a result of a burst on one of our water pipes.

“We were alerted to the burst on Saturday evening and worked quickly to restore disrupted water supplies and repair the pipe.

“Unfortunately the burst had caused some quite substantial damage to the road so it was necessary to back-fill the hole and allow the new road surface time to set properly.

“This work has now been completed and we’d like to thank all concerned for their patience and support whilst these emergency repairs were taking place.”
