I have received the following information this morning:
This is to let you know that a burst water pipe above the first floor at Walkden Gateway overnight has meant that the Centre has had to be closed to the public (all Health and Council services and facilities, including the adult and childrens libraries, are closed)
John Tanner (Assistant Director Customer Services) is on site together with representatives of Mast Lift Co (responsible for the property management) and other partners.
The burst water pipe has caused a considerable amount of flooding. The burst pipe has been located and dealt with. An assessment is currently being undertaken by the appropriate parties.
Public information about the closure has been posted on the internet. Further information or advice will be provided in due course.
