A burst water pipe has been causing massive traffic delays in Plymouth, with hundreds of commuters caught up in chaos on the roads this morning.

The flood waters flowing from Tavistock Road combined with a crash on the A38 reportedly left the Tamar Bridge at a standstill, with long delays throughout the city.

Police say congestion is still "very heavy", though starting to clear between Deep Lane and Leigham.

Water supplies in the Tavistock Road / PL6 5 area may be disrupted while South West Water carries out urgent repairs. The company does not know when these will finish, but will be posting updates here.
