Thousands of people in Wymondham should have their water supply back 'within a couple of hours' after engineers moved swiftly to fix a burst main.

People in the south Norfolk town and surrounding villages woke to find they had no water after the main burst.

But Anglian Water engineers were quickly at the scene, and by 10am the burst had been fixed.

A spokesman said: 'We got the team out very quickly to start repair work and get people back on their supply.

'Some will be back on now and the remainder will be back on in the next couple of hours.'
