Hundreds of homes in Durham without water

Northumbrian Water Statement: We are aware that customers in the DH1 & DH7 areas may have experienced an interruption to their water supply. This was a technical issue which resulted in the loss of supply for a short time. We are currently charging up the network and hope to restore supplies soon.

If you have water but it is at a reduced pressure, please be advised that the water can take some time to return to normal pressure. If your supply is discoloured when it returns, please run your first draw cold tap (normally in the kitchen) for 40-50 minutes to clear the supply.
