A ROAD is closed due to a burst water main outside a Wimborne school.

Bournemouth Water engineers are working to repair the issue in Wimborne Road, Colehill.

The issue is near Beaucroft Foundation School and traffic is being forced to find alternative routes due to the road closure.

A Bournemouth Water spokeswoman said: "A section of Wimborne Road is closed to traffic while Bournemouth Water repairs a leak outside number 67.

"We have two crews on site working to repair the pipe and reinstate the road surface as quickly as possible, and we hope to reopen the road to traffic tomorrow."
