A  burst pipe in Stevenage means some residents have been left with no water, or have lower pressure than normal.

Affinity Water says it was made aware of a burst main on Aston Lane near to Stevenage Golf Course this morning, which was affecting the local pumping station.

It has left various streets in SG2, SG3, SG12, SG14, AL6 and AL7 without water, or with lower pressure than normal.

The burst has been isolated and a large section of the eight-inch pipe that was damaged has been replaced, Affinity Water has confirmed.

A spokesperson for the water company said: "Good news - we've now fixed the burst water main.

"As part of the final part of the repair we'll now be flushing the pipe to stop any discolouration or cloudiness when your water supply is restored. During this time you may see water flowing in Aston Lane and Stringers Lane.  

"We've delivered bottled water to our most vulnerable customers who are on the Priority Services Register.

"We anticipate your supply will be restored later today."
