Disruption in Muswell Hill is continuing after a burst water main caused homes to be evacuated yesterday (October 10).

Firefighters are continuing to try and clear up to eight inches of water, which has caused some areas of the road and pavement on Muswell Hill Road to collapse.

The London Fire Brigade said eight homes have been effected and 10 people have had to be evacuated.

They are continuing to pump water out of houses and using sand bags to stop the damage spreading.

Alistair Crane lives in Muswell Hill and uses the road most days. He said traffic is just about returning to normal, but people are still surprised by the flooding.

He said: "There are quite a few basement flats along that stretch of the road so I guess they will be flooded. I always thought being on top of a hill that flooding would be almost impossible - you don't think events like this could happen.

"There have been a few burst water mains in the area and endless roadworks to fix them."

Twitter was also flooded yesterday, with people sharing pictures and video of the extraordinary sight: 

LFB say they were called at 2.39pm on October 10, and firefighters from Hornsey, West Hampstead and Kentish Town were at the scene

Thames Water, who own the pipe, have apologised and say they are trying to fix the problem.

Haringey Council also said sorry and urged people to avoid the area between Archway Road and Woodland Gardens.
