Anglian Water (AW) said about 1,000 homes were originally affected when an eight-inch pipe burst on Hall Road, near Knapton's water tower.

AW received a first report of the incident shortly before 7am. A spokesman said engineers hoped to restore supplies to the remaining homes 'in the early afternoon.'
