Anglian Water workers are fixing a water main in Northampton that has left hundreds of homes with low pressure or without any supply.

The leak, in Ecton Brook Road, was reported this morning, with the water flowing down Parkside towards the brook itself.

A spokesman for Anglian Water said up to 669 properties had been affected.

An alternative supply has been connected, which has seen most of the homes’ supplies back to normal, and the remainder should be restored by the end of today, the company said.
