The majority of homes in a north Norfolk town have had their water supply restored after several burst water mains caused many to experience low water pressure or no water at all.
Large parts of Sheringham experienced problems with their water supply on Saturday, January 16, due to "several burst water mains."
Around 80 properties in the town were affected including those in Woodland Rise West, Holway Road and The Turning.
By 2pm the majority of homes had seen their water supply restored but seven were still without.
A spokesperson for Anglian Water, said: “We’re really sorry some customers in Sheringham, may have low pressure or no water at all today, our team are working to fix a series of burst mains in the area.
"Of the 80 properties off water most have been restored with just seven remaining off while we work on a complex repair.
"We’re using tankers and moving water around our network to get supplies back to as many people as possible while we complete the repairs.

"We’d like to apologise for any inconvenience this causes, rest assured we’re working hard to get things back to normal as quickly as possible. As our teams work hard to recharge the network a larger number of households may experience white or cloudy water, this is caused by air bubbles and is completely harmlessly.
"Thank-you to everyone in the area for your patience while our teams battle tough weather conditions to get the job done.”
