A leisure centre has been forced to shut today after a water main burst. 

The new Chilterns Lifestyle Centre in Amersham had to close on Sunday, and may still be closed tomorrow, following the incident. 

A statement reads: "The mains water to the building has been lost due to a burst pipe in the local vicinity. We unfortunately will be closed until this has been rectified.

"A team are currently working on the fault however we will remain closed for the remainder of today.

"It is unlikely we will be open tomorrow morning but as soon as we have any updates in regards to when we will be able to reopen a further post will be provided.

"Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause."
