Four thousand homes on the Isle of Sheppey have been without water for most of the day. It's due to a burst water main on the - A249 - between Sheerness and Bobbing. Bottled water is being provided for residents in the area.
Southern Water says "We are working as swiftly as possible to reconnect the water supply to customers on the Isle of Sheppey. Bottled water is available at Morrison's supermarket in Queenborough. We are sorry for the inconvenience but it is unlikely that water supplies will be connected this evening. This is because once the water supply is reconnected it will take a few hours to test and refill the water network in the area. A separate burst on a much smaller pipe in Harps Avenue, Minster, was fixed earlier today however the customers affected by that incident may still be without water because of the larger burst under the A249."
