A burst water main has caused homes in a part of Norwich to find themselves with little or no running water.
Anglian Water engineers were called to repair the problem which occurred in the Sherbourne Place area of Norwich on Friday evening.
The company expects water supplies to be restored by 11pm.
Following the repair, customers were advised they may need to run their tap as the water may look a little cloudy or discoloured.
In an update shortly before 9pm, the company said: "We're really sorry but some customers in Sherbourne Place, Norwich, may have very low water pressure or no water at all.

The company apologised for the inconvenience caused.
