Have your say

A huge water fountain was sent into the air after workmen burst a pipe.

Local residents reported a loss of water supply following the incident, which saw water sent more than 20ft in the air, at White Lund Road in Morecambe at around 4pm on Tuesday.

A power cut due to an underground cable fault also affected 41 homes and businesses in the area.

Electricity Northwest and United Utilities confirmed they were looking into the issues.

Meanwhile local residents and passersby captured pictures of the water spout on camera, including this image posted by @DaveBillinge
