A spokesperson from NI Water said: “NI Water is dealing with a burst water main on Royal Avenue.

“Staff are at the site and emergency repair work will begin on the main as soon as possible.

“Rezoning (bringing water from other water networks) is currently taking place and efforts are being made to have cars that are parked at the location of the burst removed.
