NI Water warns of deteriorating situation

Northern Ireland Water is warning of a deteriorating situation because of an ongoing industrial dispute.

About 1,600 homes are currently without supply in counties Tyrone and Fermanagh.

Workers are refusing to respond to out-of-hours call-outs in a dispute over pensions.

BBC News reporter Martin Cassidy spoke to George Butler from NI Water who said the situation was likely to get worse for customers over the weekend.
