Bransdale Close, Great Sankey, Warrington

One fire engine attended from Penketh


At around 12 noon firefighters received a report of a leak from a main water feed to a house in Bransdale Close, Great Sankey, Warrington.

On arrival water from the leak was in the property's kitchen.

Firefighters isolated the electricity supply to the house and used a suction hose to redirect flood water out of the property and into a drain.

They also isolated the water supply to a neighbouring house and arranged for United Utilities to attend.

The utility company temporarily isolated the water supply to all properties in the close whilst a tap was fitted on an internal pipe to stop the leak.

Once the leak was stopped by the company firefighters left the close.

They were in attendance for around three-and-a-half hours.
