WATER supplies were disrupted across South Holland this afternoon because of an electrical fault.

An Anglian Water spokesman said there was an equipment failure with a pump at one of its sites at about 2pm, resulting in no water or low water pressure to some of its customers.

The places affected included Cowbit, Gedney, Gedney Drove End, Holbeach, Long Sutton, Moulton, Spalding, Sutton St James, Weston, Whaplode, Wingland and Moulton Chapel.

A message on the firm’s website reads: “We apologise for the inconvenience caused by this interruption to your service.”

Engineers got the service running again just after 3pm.
