There have been further delays in restoring water to several homes in Dereham.

Anglian Water workmen are attempting to fix a burst water main in the Normandy Drive area of the town.

There has been no water supply at some homes since 5.30am.

Anglian Water had estimated that the problem would be fixed by 1pm but are now saying the problems are expected to be resolved by 5pm.

Anglian Water said in a statement: 'We're really sorry but some customers in Normandy Drive, Dereham may have low water pressure or no water at all.

You may also want to watch:

'We've got a burst main in your area that we're working hard to get fixed, so that we can get your supply back to normal as soon as possible.

'When the water is back it may look a little cloudy or discoloured, just run your tap for a couple of minutes and it should clear.'
