Over FIFTY households had to stay in emergency accommodation last night after a burst water main flooded homes in north London.
There have been properties and a school were affected with unprecedented flooding after a water pipe cracked in the Finsbury Park area yesterday morning (8 October).
Thames Water said that they had put in place and all flood water had been pumped away, but flooding persists.
It is reported that the water main burst at the junction of Queens Drive and Princess Crescent.
About 12 fire engines and 80 firefighters were deployed to help rescue people and pump water away but many people were left with no water.
Water supplies for all properties in the area have been restored and backups of bottled water have been supplied. Thames Water has warned that there may be some problems during the morning.
