Floody Hell whats going on here?, Bust water main on London Road, Derby.

This was the scene on the morning of Friday 31st July 2009 at the end of London Road where it meets up with the bottom of Bradshaw Way and Traffic Street.
The water was emerging from the ground over a large area, several fountains. It was even comming out of the base of the traffic bollards and the traffic light control Iron cover. Most of the water was comming out of the tarmac near the lights as you can see at 0:15

There was so much water that all the drains were blocked and the water was going all the way down London Road and then down Liversage Road (See 2:25 ), Carrington Street and starting to go up Trinity Street. I left at that point as I don't have a boat and can't swim!

did not have my HD video camera with me so unfortunately the quality is not great as it was done with my old Olympus 5050 camera.
