Dozens of BL6 residents have been left without water today due to a leak.

Residents reported to United Utilities early this morning that their properties were without running water, or it was just coming out as a trickle.

This is due to a leak on Pendennis Avenue with engineers being called to fix the issue.

A United Utilites spokesman said: "A leak on Pendennis Avenue affecting customers in BL6, has been spotted and reported to us. We’ve been out to investigate and found this to be the cause for some of you having no water or just a trickle.

"Our leakage engineers should be on site as soon as possible. We’re sorry for the inconvenience and hope to have your taps flowing again very soon."
