Water supplies cut to hundreds of Oxfordshire homes

Hundreds of homes in Oxfordshire were left without water after a pipe burst.

Some residents in Wootton, Stonesfield and Combe had to cope without their supply for about 15 hours as engineers worked through the night.

Thames Water said it has repaired the fault and customers should be seeing their supplies reconnected.

The firm warned due to the length of time the water has been off for it may take a couple of hours for full pressure to be restored.

Bottled water was made available from a number of collection points.
