Swindon Old Town road closed for sewer repairs

A main road through Swindon has been closed off again to carry out repairs to damaged sewerage pipes.

Devizes Road in Old Town has been closed off several times in the last 12 months so Thames Water can carry out the repairs.

The water firm has said the Victorian pipes are being damaged by vibrations from road traffic.

It also said the age of the whole system, as well as people flushing fat down the pipes, was a problem.
