A burst water main in the Suffolk villages of Boxford, Polstead and surrounding areas has left dozens with low water pressure or no water at all.
Anglian Water officials are investigating the problem and hope to restore normal water quality by 2pm today.
In a statement, bosses said: “We’re very sorry but some customers in Boxford, Polstead Heath and surrounding areas may have very low water pressure or no water at all.
“We’ve identified a burst water main in the area that we’re working hard to get fixed, so we can get the supply back to normal as soon as possible. This should be by 2pm today but our In Your Area tool will be updated if anything changes.
“Again, we’re really sorry we’ve inconvenienced customers, and we’d like to thank them for their patience.”
