RESIDENTS in an estate in Sherfield-on-Loddon are expected to get their water supply back shortly following a burst water main.

Emergency repair work was carried out yesterday on a burst water main on the A33 near Church End after residents from Sherfield Park reported low water pressure.

Bottled water was handed out to residents during the emergency works at the Sherfield Park Community Centre, in Sunwood Drive, by the water company.

In addition, residents in Bramley, Fair Oak Green and Church End were also thought to have been experiencing low water pressure.

Graeme Mellor, regional works delivery manger at South East Water, said: “I would like to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused, but hope they understand that we are taking all necessary steps to repair the water main and restore supplies as soon as possible.”
