Most households appear to have running water following an earlier burst water main near Asda in Queensferry.  

Engineers continues work on the burst pipe and tankers are brining water in to keep the network topped up.

Update 2. Welsh water says it has managed to move the water around the network to get some of our affected customers back on supply. 

“A tanker will arrive shortly to pump more water in the pipes. We’re expecting most of our customers to have their supply back once we’re able to do this.”

Update 1. A burst pipe has left hundreds of properties in Sandycroft, Shotton, Queensferry, Aston and Mancot without running water.

The burst pipe is reported to be on on Aston Road close to Asda.

In an update at 1.30pm Welsh Water said: “Our team are currently on site starting to repair the burst pipe. We’ve located this on Aston Rd, Queensferry. 

We’re on track to have your water flowing as usual by early this evening.”
