Update: Burst water main latest for King’s Lynn, Clenchwarton, West Winch and Sutton Bridge
Water supplies are returning to normal in West Norfolk after a burst main caused the taps to run dry in thousands of homes this morning.
Properties as far afield as King's Lynn, Clenchwarton, West Winch and Sutton Bridge were affected when a large trunk main burst near the hardwick roundabout.
Anglian Water spokesman Antony Innes said: 'Most people were back on as of 8.30am, we've got re-zones and booster pumps started which take 30 to 45 minutes to build pressure in the network.
'That's with the exception of some low pressure around Sutton Bridge.'
My Innes said the main burst around 4am, on the site where a new Saindbury's supermarket is being built.
