Around 100 homes were flooded after a water main burst.

London Fire Brigade were called just after 1am on Wednesday morning (January 15) after the pipe burst in Ordnance Road, Enfield, between Newbury Avenue and Salisbury Road.

The brigade says around 300 meters of water flooded the road, which was estimated to be around 18 inches deep.

Around 100 homes were also flooded during the incident.

Borough Commander Richard Tapp, who was at the scene, said: “Firefighters worked to investigate which properties were affected and fortunately there were no emergency evacuations.

“Crews used two light portable pumps to pump the water away from the road and affected houses.”

Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters were called to flooding, which took just over seven hours to clear.
