Supermarket shelves are being emptied of bottled water as homes in Birmingham have been left with little or no supply since this morning.
Thousands of homes in the city have been hit by supply issues after a water main burst earlier today.
Severn Trent Water has said it is moving water around the network and bringing in a fleet of tankers to try to restore water supply as soon as possible.
They hope to get 2,900 homes in Great Barr back up and running within a couple of hours, along with 1,500 homes in Northfield.
A further 2,700 houses in the Bartley Green and Woodgate areas and 600 in Selly Oak have also been affected.
