HOMES in villages around Bromyard have been left without mains water this morning after a pipe burst.

Welsh Water's online map of problems across the region showed that Munderfield and Stoke Lacy had been left without water on Thursday morning.

Smaller villages such as Avenbury and Crick's Green are also affected.

"We're aware of a burst on our network which is affecting the water supply to this area," not-for-profit company Welsh Water said.


Customers were told they may have low pressure or no water. All supplies should be restored by later this morning.

"As a general rule, it should take about five seconds to fill a pint glass from the cold water tap in your kitchen," it said.

"If you can run your cold kitchen tap, this will also help to clear any discolouration in your supply."
