Roadworks which caused long tailbacks in Chessington yesterday are to be completed this afternoon.

The works, in Leatherhead Road, are being carried out by Thames Water.

The company was called yesterday by Chessington World of Adventures, which reported low water pressure in the park.

A Thames Water spokeswoman said no leaks or bursts were found under the road, and that the low pressure was down to high demand for water in the hot weather.

The work will be completed by 3pm today, she said.
