New Forest homes without water due to burst main

Residents were left without water in Hampshire after a water main burst overnight.

About 70 homes were affected when the 10in (25cm) trunk main burst on the A35 Lyndhurst Road in Ashurst, on the edge of the New Forest.

Bottled water was sent to the area before the supply was restored.

Southern Water said repairs to the road surface would take several days and traffic management would remain in place.
