Southern Water said: "Customers should be back in supply, however, we are expecting this to be intermittent throughout the day as we continue to fix the technical fault at our Easton water supply works.

"These interruptions to your service should be intermittent but may last until Tuesday.

"We’re continuing to deliver bottled water to our most vulnerable customers on our priority services register.

"You may notice tankers operating in the area as they inject water into the network to top up supplies and keep critical services running for the community."
