Southern Water has apologised to a number of Newport residents after a burst main left several properties without water.

A statement from Southern Water said: "The initial burst caused low pressure and temporary loss of supply to a wider area for a short time.

"As soon as we located the burst, work began to minimise impact and we believe it’s only homes in Staplers Road, Long Lane, some of Pan Meadows Estate and Briddlesford Road which are now without supply.

"Customers registered with us on the Priority Service Register will be given priority support and receive bottled water to their homes.

"A bottled water collection point is now in place at the top of Godric Road for those with no water. We ask those attending to please abide by social distancing guidelines."

If you or anyone you know needs additional support please call 0330 3030368.
