Southern Water says its due to a fault with the treatment process at its Wingham supply works.

It has apologised and is working to fix the problem.

A spokesperson for the company said, "We’re sorry customers in areas of Adisham, Ash, Aylesham, Bekesbourne, Bridge, St Nicholas-at-Wade and Monkton may still be experiencing a loss of supply or low water pressure this morning.

This is due to technical issues at our Wingham Water Supply Works involving the water treatment process.

Teams are on-site and have been working through the night to address the issue. Their efforts will continue throughout today.
