SOME homes have been left without water and a school may be forced to close early following a water leak in Huntingdon.

A water pipe burst outside Spring Common School in American Lane on Wednesday morning (July 21) resulting in large puddles forming outside the school gates.

A spokesman at the school said they may be forced to close the school a few hours early if the water supply is turned off.

She said: "We are yet to make a final decision and parents will be informed."

They had been reports that the leak had resulted in a number of homes in nearby California Road being left without water.

But a spokesman for Anglian Water said they had no intention of turning off the water supply to the school or nearby homes while repairs take place.

He added that engineers had been sent to the site to fix the leak.

INFORMATION: Anyone who has been left without water as a result of the leak should phone Anglian Water on 08457 145145.
