SEVERAL Winchester homes were without water this afternoon (Jan 8).

Around 35 homes in Kings Worthy had no supply or low pressure for an hour-and-a-half.

The problem began just after 3pm due to a faulty connection in Springvale Road, Kings Worthy.

A Southern Water spokesman said: “A problem with a connection on a water main in Springvale Road, Kings Worthy, caused an interruption to water supplies for about an hour and a half this afternoon.

“The connection was quickly replaced and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.”
