RESIDENTS have reported problems with the water supply in Little Lever this morning.

A number of streets have been left without water and several others have low pressure.

United Utilities said there is a problem with a valve that may have caused problems with the water supply in the Church Street area.

A spokesman said an inspector has been sent to the scene and the problem is being dealt with.

He added: "We are reluctant to put a time frame on it but residents should start to get their supply back now that the source of the problem has been found and addressed."
