British homes suffer water supply issues after snowstorm

Steve said: "We are asking people to look in their attics, airing cupboards, under their sinks and to check the taps out in their gardens to see if they have got any unnoticed leaks which could be a trickle at the moment but later will cause major damage".

The disruptions to the water supply began to affect people in parts of the borough including Bilton, Dunchurch, Newbold, Brownsover and Hillmorton on the evening of Sunday, March 4.

"Also when people are out and about can they be on the watch for any extra water which normally isn't there".

He added: "We are prioritising supplies for our vulnerable customers and those with medical needs and also providing updates as much as we can".

About 5,000 homes are without water in Kent, thousands of properties are affected in Wales, and a further 12,000 homes in the capital lost water overnight, the BBC reports.

Suppliers warned that water supplies would continue to have the issue on Monday as they worked to fix leaks and refill pipes.
