Southern Water has apologised to residents living on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent this morning (July 12), after works to a burst water main left scores of people without water, or with low pressures coming out of taps. It says it is “really sorry” to those affected and has set up a bottled water collection point in Leysdown-on-Sea in Sheerness for people to visit. The blunder has happened when the south east will experience sweltering heatwave temperatures, and people have been told to keep hydrated. There has been no time limit given as to when the water issues will be resolved.

A spokesman for Southern Water said: “We’re really sorry to customers on the Isle of Sheppey with low pressure or no water supply. This is due to our repair work on a burst main in the area.

“Our priority is to set up bottled water collection points.

“We’re also continuing to make sure those on our priority service register have water delivered. The team are working to get the repair finished as quickly as possible.

“We’re really sorry again for the disruption this situation will cause.”
