A huge area of March and surrounding villages is suffering from low water pressure on one of the hottest days of the year.
A burst water main in March has cut back the service for homes and businesses in an area measuring more than 42 square miles reaching from Rings End to Mepal and from Eastrea to beyond Manea.
An Anglia Water spokesman said: “We’re really sorry but some customers in March may have very low water pressure or no water at all.
“We’ve got a burst main in your area that we’re working hard to get fixed so that we can get your supply back to normal as soon as possible.
“This should be by 4pm today but we’ll update this message if anything changes.
You may also want to watch:
“When the water is back it may look a little cloudy or discoloured.
“Just run your tap for a couple of minutes and it should clear.”
