Burst water mains in the heart of Kilmarnock Town Centre are causing flooding issues this evening.

Several pipe covers have been seen spraying water on King Street, with many joking on social media about this being a new water fountain feature installed by the council.

Concerns remain however, with retailers at either side of the street the problem could present significant consequences.

Both Scottish Water and East Ayrshire Council have been notified and it is expected the issue will be fixed as a priority this evening.
