Water has been restored in Winchester after a failure but the supply may still be intermittent, Southern Water has warned. 

On Saturday, January 13, residents in the Kings Worthy area faced low water pressure, with some having no water at all.

Southern Water confirmed that the incident was due to a "technical failure" at its Easton Water Supply Works late on Friday, January 12.
