The water supply in areas of Frodsham and Helsby is back after being disrupted by a burst pipe.

For more than two hours homes and businesses were left with low pressure or no water at all from 11am on Wednesday (July 20).

The source of the problem was a leaking pipe at the bottom end of Robin Hood Lane in Helsby.

United Utilities said the fault had been fixed by 1.30pm.

They also apologised to customers and thanked them for their patience.

A United Utilities statement said: “Our team of engineers has finished repairing the leaking pipe on Lower Robin Hood Lane and the water should be starting to flow normally again.

“However it may take up to two hours for the water pressure to return to normal levels.

“We’re sorry if this has affected you and thank you for your patience.

“Because there’s been some disturbance to the pipes in your area you may notice the water is a little cloudy or discoloured, please check our Discoloured Water page for more information.”
