A BURST water main has left homes without water in a Herefordshire town this morning.

Welsh Water said a burst main is affecting the Bromyard and Bringsty areas today (October 17). 

The provider's 'In your area' map shows problems are affecting homes as far away from the town as Felton, Bishops Frome, Grendon Green, Whitbourne, and Upper Sapey.

Students at Bromyard's Queen Elizabeth High School have been sent home as the school has no water.

Welsh Water said they are aware of a burst main on the network, and that some homes may be without water or suffer from low water pressure until the pipe is repaired.

Supplies are expected to be restored later this morning, the provider said.
