Earlier in the week, Radio Gateshead reported how part of Chainbridge Road had to close due to flooding.

Today, Gateshead Council have said:

”The westbound carriageway of Chainbridge Road is still closed due to a broken pump which is causing flooding during high tide.

The pump will be inspected on Thursday afternoon. The road may need to be closed for longer depending on the repair.

Sorry for any inconvenience.”
