The East Lancs Road has fully re-opened following a burst water main.

The A580 was shut for most of Wednesday, causing traffic problems for surrounding areas.

However, Catchdale Moss Road - the site of the burst main - remains closed at its junction with Howards Lane.

Council chiefs are warning the road could be closed to traffic for up to a week.

Diversions are in operation.
