People across the Norwich area were left without running water this morning after a pump failure.

The interruption to the water supply began early on Tuesday, June 9, affecting residents of the city and surrounding areas, from Cringleford and Keswick south of Norwich to Buxton and the area of RAF Coltishall further north.

It left hundreds of households with low water pressure or none at all – provider Anglian Water quickly tasked engineers with fixing the problem.

People took to Twitter to share the news that their water supply had been affected, with residents from NR1 to NR8 complaining of low water pressure or no supply at all.

Engineers completed the work at around 9.15am, 45 minutes before their estimated time of 10am.

Anglian Water said: “Thanks for your patience – we have now been able to restart the pumps for this area.

“Even though the water is back it may look a little cloudy or discoloured, but if you run your tap for a few minutes it should clear.

“We are really sorry for any inconvenience we have caused by this interruption.”
