Thousands of homes across London are left without access to water or have low pressure as schools are forced to close due to a “power supply issue” at the Thames Water plant.
The problem was caused by a power supply problem affecting the Ashford and Hampton water treatment plants in west London.
Thames Water said: “We are working hard to resolve the issue and get things back to normal.”
“We will provide further updates here as we have more information.”
Accordingly Sky News, MP for Twickenham, Munira Wilson, said some schools in her area had been forced to close over the issue and called on Thames Water to “resolve the issue soon”.
