A busy road remains closed for a third day in a row after a water main burst.

Repair work is continuing in Harrow Road, Wembley, after a 12-inch water main ruptured, flooding the street on Saturday (May 13).

Today (May 15) Harrow Road remains closed both ways between Black Horse pub and Priory Hill, with cars being diverted and the 92 bus rerouted.

Affinity Water has said: “For the safety of our team and road users, there is a road closure on Harrow Road.

“We're sorry if this causes some traffic delays and we'd ask you to avoid the area if possible.
