450 homes in Sussex are without water

Up to 450 homes are without water in the village of Ninfield in East Sussex. South East Water say it's due to a series of power cuts in the Bexhill area which means the company's pumps are unable to operate and move water around the network.

Simon Robertson from South East Water, said: “Our Technicians have been working hard overnight and throughout today to pump water back into the reservoir, however levels remain low and consequently up to 450 properties in the Ninfield area are without water.

“Bottled water is available for local residents to collect in the car park of The Blacksmith’s Inn, High Street, Ninfield.”
