Holidaymakers and schoolchildren were among thousands of people without running water after a mains pipe burst.

About 100 people staying at Norton Park Chalets near Dartmouth were affected from about 04:00 BST until 11:55.

Blackawton Primary School closed its doors for the day.

South West Water (SWW), which traced the burst to a farm between East Allington and Blackawton, apologised to customers and thanked them for their patience.
