A water leak is causing traffic problems on one of the busiest routes into Bispham.
Motorists have been seen swerving to avoid water gathering in Bispham Road following the leak, which United Utilities said was reported at around 11.30am.
A spokesman said a crew of engineers, based at a depot in Blackburn, have been called to the scene, close to B&Q, by an inspector.
He added: "We will carry out the necessary repairs as quickly as we can to prevent any further waste of water."
