Roadworks to repair damage from burst water pipes in Surbiton will drag on until next week, Thames Water has said.

A 6in pipe burst yesterday afternoon, causing significant damage to the road at the junction of St Mark's Hill and Ewell Road.

Four-way temporary traffic lights have been installed.

Repairs on the initial burst were completed yesterday, but more leaks were found.

"Our teams are working hard to fix a second leak, as well as repairing damage to the road caused by the burst pipe.
