THIRTY seven homes are without water and part of a busy road is closed this morning after a water main burst.

The eastbound side of West View Road, in Hartlepool, since 9pm last night when the pipe burst.

Engineers worked throughout the night and continue to work at the scene this morning.

Bosses at Hartlepool Water say they expect to have the problem fixed and the road back open at 1pm.

They are supplying bottled water to all of their customers who have been affected.
