Disruption has continued at Winchester Crown Court today forcing cases to be moved after reports of a burst water pipe. 

All cases have been postponed or moved from the court on High Street, Winchester for the third day in a row. 

No one aside from lawyers have been allowed into the building with staff stopping anyone from entering.

The pipe is believed to have burst on Tuesday morning (October 31). 

A court clerk told The Echo's sister paper, The Hampshire Chronicle: "It's a county council water main which has burst so we hope that they can fix it."

The building has six courtrooms which were due to host trials, pre-trial hearings and bail applications. 

The Ministry of Justice and Hampshire County Council, which own the building, have been contacted for comment.
