A burst water main is still causing problems for some homes near Bury St Edmunds three days after it was first reported. 

Properties in Ampton are still experiencing low water pressure or no water at all as a result of the burst water main that was first reported to Anglian Water on Tuesday, October 12. 

Anglian Water said in a statement on Tuesday that the burst pipe was proving to be "complex" to repair. 

The statement on the Anglian Water website said the repair is taking longer than was originally hoped. 

It was originally expected to be fixed by midday on Tuesday, October 13. 

The website now states that water supplies are expected to be restored by midday today, Friday, October 15.
