A second pump failure in as many days has again left a number of Norwich homes without water.

Anglian Water teams were called to the same pump on two occasions on the weekend leaving homes experiencing very low pressure or no water at all. 

An Anglian Water said the "brief" failure was fixed within 30 minutes of being reported on Sunday.

An Anglian Water spokesperson said: “Our team has now restored supplies to customers following a brief pump failure which caused some customers in Norwich and surroundings areas to experience a loss of water for a short period of time.

"Teams have been monitoring the network over the weekend to reduce the likelihood of further outages, and again swiftly responded to restore supplies to customers within 30 minutes.

"We would like to apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused, and thank customers for their patience while we worked to get this fixed.”

There was a mass outage across the city on Saturday morning which was restored after an hour.

Anglian Water teams were called to repair the issue which left a huge area of Norwich with low pressure or no water.
