Motorists are facing long delays on a main city road after a sewer collapsed.
Anglian Water engineers have been forced to shut a stretch of Oundle Road following the collapse today.
The road is shut between Lynch Wood and the Orton Parkway, and a diversion through Lynch Wood has been put in place.
The closure is set to be in place for three weeks, with the road set to re-open on July 26.
A spokesman for Anglian Water said: “In order to repair the sewer we have had to close the road.
“The sewer is four metres down. We don’t know how complicated the work will be.
“No-one has been without service as a result of the collapse, and we have been putting in an overland sewer pipe for the duration of the works so no-one will be off grid. “We apologise for the disruption caused.”
