Water gushes out of burst pipe in Wimborne
9:33am Friday 4th July 2014 in News
THIS fountain of water stopped walkers in their tracks in one of Wimborne’s busiest streets yesterday.
But despite the dramatic display, just one property was affected by the incident, officials from Sembcorp Bournemouth Water said.
A spokesperson for the company said: “There was a fault with one of the pipes.
“It’s not a main pipe, but what we call a communication pipe that serves various properties. It affected just a single supply.”
She said a technician and crew attended to fix the problem.
She added: “There’s no need for us to close the road partially for works, as it just affects the footpath.”
