Firefighters were called to flooding in Romford this morning.
Carlton Road has been damaged by the expulsion of water – caused by a burst water main, firefighters said.
In places the road has been lifted and a brown grit has been left, according to a witness.
Nicola Laken, 54, who runs the Deermead Court care home on the adjacent Junction Road, said: “I was walking my dog at about 7am this morning, and I could see the damage, and little bits of brown grit.
“It’s lifted up the road in places.”
A Romford firefighter said crews were called shortly after 6.30am to Carlton Road, and engineers quickly isolated the leak.
