A burst water main left some homes in Sunderland without a supply this morning.

Northumbrian Water has confirmed it is dealing with an issue on North Hylton Road in Southwick after the incident was reported shortly after 6am today.

It has said the supply has now been restored in the area, but has said drivers will still face disruption in the area as temporary traffic lights have been set up while a team looks to carry out repairs.

Northumbrian Water has said it is issuing updates via its Twitter account, @nwater_care.
