HOUSES in March have been without water this morning after a power failure hit two pumps in Fenland.

Reports of no water and low pressure were reported after the pump problem at around 8am.

A spokesman for Anglian Water said the power failure was a “minor blip” and had knocked two pumps out of action.

The spokesman said: “This was corrected at about 8-45 so maximum pressure should have built up again by now. Things should now be back to normal.”

If anyone is still experiencing problems, they should contact Anglian Water on 08457 145145.
