“We are still in the very early stages of this investigation and at the moment, we are following a number of lines of enquiry.

“Officers are out in Headington talking to local residents and offering reassurance today and I urge anyone with information on this incident to please get in touch.”

A burst in the Old Road area of Headington, Oxford, was reported at around 6.30am and is affecting properties in the area which have either lost supply altogether or lost water pressure.
Thames Water has said it has isolated the stretch of pipe meaning there is no longer any water in it, but the pipe has not yet been fixed.
Thames Water is sending a truck of bottled water to Headington following the burst of a water main this morning.

“We are very sorry to everyone in the Headington area and we are working as fast as we can to fix it.”
