The incident forced the closure of one of the main routs into the town, compounded it being good weather, tailbacks soon built up. A United Utilities engineer said, "The fire brigade had to pump out two semi detached houses near the burst were flooded with 12 inches of water had crept its way in." Over the early hours of the morning a section of road between Haig Avenue and the Town had to be closed off at around 6:45am due to the growing flood.
