Burst pipe in east Devon cuts off water supplies

Households in part of east Devon have been without water because of a burst pipe in the area.

South West Water said it had received about 20 calls from customers in the Bampton area, near Tiverton, about a loss of supply.

The company said staff were working to locate the problem and repair it as soon as possible.

The company has been dealing with a surge in leaks across the South West caused by frozen pipes thawing out.

It said areas in east and North Deon had been the worst affected.
