Thames Water has issued a statement apologising for the disruption caused by a burst water main in Ealing. An estimated 4000 homes and around 30 businesses have been affected.
Here is the statement in full:
Thousands of homes and around 30 shops have been affected by flooding in Ealing. Firefighters sent four appliances to the scene to pump away water and isolate the main.
Many houses are still without water, although residents have been advised by Thames Water that pressure should begin to return later this afternoon.
The incident comes with more water woes elsewhere in London, as heavy rains is causing travel disruption across the capital. Keep up to date here: http://bit.ly/1B5FyAc
