An Altrincham road was closed due to flooding from an issue with a water main.

Dunham Road was closed between the A560 and the B5160 today (September 20).

According to a post on social media by One Trafford, the partnership between Trafford Council and its contractor Amey PLC, the reason for the closure was flooding from an issue with a water main close to The Devisdale.

United Utilities remained on the scene at the time of writing.

A spokesperson said: "We’re happy to confirm that repairs to the burst are underway. Our team still have some work to do to get things back to normal, and we are working as quickly as possible to restore supplies.

"Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience this may be causing."
