One resident said: “We got woken at 4.30am by drilling and cutting equipment.

“We went to investigate at 9 o’clock and found a 9 inch water main had burst open on the Churchill Road. Workmen told me they were verbally abused by a neighbour because of the noise”

An Anglian Water spokesman said: “We apologise to customers in Wisbech who currently have no water or low water pressure.

“This is caused by a burst water main and we are working hard to restore your supply.
