Residents in Clevedon no longer have to boil their water before using it after Bristol Water lifted its health notice.

The notice was put in place on Thursday after part of the town's water supply was found to be contaminated.

Bristol Water says it detected the parasite cryptosporidium, which can cause vomiting and diarrhoea.

It says the drinking water supply to Clevedon is now coming from other treatment works.

Over the last few days, we have been taking samples from the treated water storage reservoir in Clevedon and at customers’ houses. No Cryptosporidium has been detected in any of these samples. We have also fully flushed the water network in the area meaning the network now has a fresh supply from other sources.

Consequently, following consultation and advice from Public Health England, we are now lifting the precautionary boil water notice.
