A burst water pipe in Dido Valley, Simon’s Town resulted in a mudslide blocking the main road and trapping some vehicles on Friday morning.

The mud slide resulted in traffic being diverted to Dido Valley Road and Red Hill Road.

Motorist, Marion’s car was among some of the vehicles trapped in the mud.

She was driving to Fish Hoek from Simon’s Town, when her car got stuck after failing to maneuver the mud torrent.

“We thought we could drive through it but, unfortunately, we got stuck…deeper and deeper,” she said.

“A bus tried to get through and they are parked next to us. My car is now completely submerged! I just put new tyres on it!”
