Huge water tankers are lining Romsey Road this weekend to stop the hospital from losing water after a supply failure across the city. 

On Saturday, January 13, residents lost their water supply due to a "technical failure" at Easton Water Supply Works late on Friday, January 12. 

Southern Water immediately sent huge tankers to Royal Hampshire County Hospital in case the hospital lost water. 

Live updates as residents hit with water supply issues after 'technical failure'

On X, formerly known as Twitter, the hospital said: "We’d like to assure people that, whilst we are experiencing low water pressure, we are still receiving continuous water supply at the Royal Hampshire County Hospital and are able to provide safe, effective care. Southern Water has provided a water tanker as a precautionary measure."

Tankers have also been spotted outside Sarum Road Hospital. 

Three bottled water stations were opened at Worthy Lane, St Catherines and Sainsbury’s on Badger Farm Road.

The water was restored on Sunday, January 14, but the water company has warned that issues may remain until Tuesday, January 15,  due to supply being high while the water is making its way through the pipes. 

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."
