A water leak in a South Manchester street has taken 10 weeks to fix. The leak on Barlow Moor Road, between Linden Road and Elm Road in Didsbury, was first reported on July 8, according to one local councillor.

However, United Utilities only fixed the leak last Friday (September 16). The water company needed a council permit to close a lane on the busy A-road and temporarily suspend a bus stop while repairs were carried out.

But the Local Democracy Reporting Service understands that the town hall only received the application for a permit from United Utilities last week.

Didsbury West councillor John Leech said the delay was 'not acceptable'. READ MORE: Liam Gallagher being lined up for new bus announcements, jokes Andy Burnham He said: "They have no justification for leaving it 10 weeks before fixing it.
