A Nelson road was blocked off late on Saturday night after a burst water main sent lots of water out and threatened to crush the road.
It happened on Bradley Hall Road at the rear of the Chunky Chicken takeaway around 10-43pm.
Fire crews were called out and because of the vast amount of water pouring round, Rawtenstall’s high volume pump was sent out there and sorted all the water.
Bradley Hall Road was blocked because of the danger of road collapse, and fire engines were covering Leeds Road.
And as a result of the water main problem the road has had to be dug up and blocked off.
