Residents close to where a water main burst have described seeing "revolting, brown" water flowing down a south London road.
Pictures have shown murky water flowing down Clapham Road in Kennington, south London as firefighters battle to contain the situation.
"The road has been made into a river. It's a bit like Somerset," Angela Reynolds, 58, said.
"It's not clear how they are going to stop it. The water is revolting, brown, muddy - well I hope it's mud.
"There are lots of basements around here. One of the houses has already been badly flooded. The water just flooded the road in 10 minutes. It was quite incredible."
