A number of homes in Bolton were left without water this morning due to a leak.

United Utilities said a leak in Park Road, Bolton, was reported by residents around 9.30am this morning.

This left many homes in the BL3 area without any water or just a trickle coming out of taps.

The leak on Park Road was repaired around midday with residents warned it may take up to two hours for their water supply to return.

A United Utilities spokesman said: "A leak on Park Road affecting customers in BL3, was spotted and reported to us.

"We’ve now repaired the leak on Park Road and your taps should be flowing again. However, it may take up to two hours for your water pressure to return to normal.

"You may also experience some discolouration of your water, this is due to the repair work on the pipe and should clear after a short time.

"Please take a look at our discoloured water page for more information. Sorry for the disruption, thanks again for your patience."
