Water issue 'intolerable' for residents

North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb says the problem of low water pressure has been "intolerable" for residents in Badersfield.

Liberal Democrat MP Mr Lamb said it followed other issues with their water supply.

"When people first moved in there were problems with them not receiving water charges, so they had no idea how much they had to pay," Mr Lamb said.

"Now we’ve had these problems with the water supply. It’s got to be sorted. It’s intolerable for people that they just don’t know when they’re going to have water."
