Wade a minute
Kennington Park Road was under several inches of water this morning after a water main burst causing havoc for commuters.
The road is a key transport link from the South into central London, and is now closed while the problem is being fixed.
TfL said that bus routes 3, 59, 133, 155, 159, 333 and 415 have all been diverted.
A Thames Water spokesman told the Evening Standard: “We have a team on their way to investigate following reports of a burst water pipe.”
Frustrated commuters and entertaining locals posted images of the flood on Twitter:
