One of the water pipes burst on Saturday (March 3) at 2pm and caused some flooding.

A Peterborough City Council spokeswoman said the main market area was isolated with another water source found to allow the market to continue as normal.

A second water pipe then burst on Saturday evening at the Laxton Square stalls, but the market was not open on Sunday or today.
