Burst water main in Beaumont Street
8:55am Tuesday 10th September 2013 in News
THIS was the unusual sight greeting commuters on their way to work this morning.
Nigel Wilkins spotted this massive jet of water spurting from a manhole cover at 7.20am in Beaumont Street, Oxford, by Oxford Playhouse.
The Botley resident - on his way to his role as clerk of works at Summer Fields School, Mayfield Rd - said: “It is not something you expect to see first thing in the morning. It was quite an impressive sight.”
Thames Water has yet to comment.
