A burst water pipe has caused serious disruption at Peterborough City Hospital.

All outpatient clinics and surgeries for today have been cancelled and only life, limb or sight saving procedures will take place.

Measures have been put in place to ensure patients have toilet and hand-washing facilities.

Visitors will only allowed into the hospital in extenuating circumstances.

There is a divert in place to neighbouring hospitals and all patients who require non-urgent treatment will not be allowed entry to the building.

“All patients who are currently on our wards are in very safe hands."

“The hospital control team are working closely with the water suppliers to ensure the issue is fixed as soon as possible and further updates will be available throughout the day.”
