Around 200 properties were left without water after work in Henstridge

UPDATE: At around 1pm, Wessex Water said supplies had been restored to all properties in Henstridge.

AROUND 200 properties in a Somerset village have been left without water due to a burst water main – and it is not clear when supplies will be returned.

Wessex Water is handing out bottled water to households in ‘vulnerable circumstances’ after workers discovered the problem in the early hours of this morning (Friday).

It came after some households were warned they would be without water overnight while work was carried out.

A Wessex Water spokesperson said: “We’re sorry customers in Henstridge may be without water or experiencing low pressure, caused by a burst water main this morning.

“We’re working to fix this as quickly as possible.”
