A WATER leak caused a woman to be outraged as she was told it could take up to two days to be fixed.

Jane Burridge lives at Gable Close and said the water could fill up to four swimming pools.

She told the Adver: "It's really gushing out, it’s coming up through the pavement. It's a very bad leak.

“A man living by it said he'd called the water company and they said it would take either 24 or 48 hours.

“The leak could fill three or four swimming pools in that time. Imagine if your house was on fire and the fire brigade said it would take 48 hours to get there.”

The leak was first reported on Friday, a day after Thames Water apologised for a burst pipe in Kembrey Park which caused road closures and temporary light fixtures were put in place.

A Thames Water spokesperson said: “We’re sorry to anyone affected by a leak on Gable Close, which was reported to us on Friday afternoon. Our engineers will investigate the leak and arrange a repair as soon as possible.”
