Hundreds of homes on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent have been without water for a large part of the day after a mains burst. This happened on the A249
Southern Water say "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."
