A resident says today has been a nightmare without water following a burst water main which flooded roads in Grantham town centre from early this morning.

Jayne Codd, who lives in Great Northern Court, told the Journal: “We still have no water. It’s been a nightmare. Fortunately we had a few bottles of water in the fridge, but we have not been able to shower or do any washing.”

She added: “We were first told it would be back on by 2.30pm and then they said 5pm, but that was half an hour ago. So we are not too pleased to be honest. My neighbour is with me. They have no water and I think most people in Great Northern Court have no water.”

Anglian Water now says it will be 8pm before the burst main is fixed. It said: “We are very sorry for the delay in completing this repair. We are still working hard to restore your supplies and to fix the burst as quickly as possible. This should now be by 8pm today and we will update this message with further information when it becomes available.”

Water poured out of the main outside Great Northern Court on Sankt Augustin Way slowing vehicles at the junction with Dysart Road.

The water company has blocked off one carriageway of the road outside Great Northern Court to carry out the work.

Anglian Water apologised to customers who may be suffering very low water pressure or have no water at all as a result of the burst main.

It said any affected customers may see some discoloured water when it comes back on but this is normal and they should keep the water running until it is clear.
