A BURST pipe in Hampton has left homes without water today (Wednesday).

Engineers from Severn Trent Water are currently trying to fix the pipe on Pershore Road which has also left many homes with low water pressure.

A four-way traffic light system has been put in place whilst the engineering work is carried out.

It’s expected supplies will return to normal ‘in the next few hours’ according to a Severn Trent Water spokesperson.

“We’re moving water around our network of pipes to restore water to most customers in the area,” a spokesperson said.

“We’re hoping that most customers will have their supply back on in the next few hours, however customers may notice lower pressure than normal until the repairs are completed.

“We know how difficult it is to have no water, especially during busy times of the day when you’re trying to get ready for work and school, and we’re very sorry for trouble caused.

“As the burst pipe is in the middle of the road, unfortunately we do need 4-way traffic lights to allow our teams to work safely and to keep road users safely away from the work area.

“We aim to have the pipe fixed and the road back to normal as soon as possible.

“Again we’d like to apologise for any disruption this may cause.”
