Something in the water?

You've woken up. You've just had a glass of water or sipped a cup of tea. Then you notice a warning leaflet pushed through your front door saying 'Don't Drink The Water!' That's what happened to people in parts of Berkshire today.

Thames Water has issued a warning to 1500 customers - with an RG8 postcode. That's people in the Moulsford, Streatley and Pangbourne areas. They've been told not to drink their tap water, due to a strange smell. Bottled water is being distributed - but there's only so much available.

Some families say there's been too little information. Asana Greenstreet reports.
