Water supply has returned to homes in Ipswich after a burst main caused problems today.

Anglian Water has been working on the emergency pipe works to return water to hundreds of homes in the north-west part of the town.

Work began early today and after initially affecting houses in four wards in Ipswich, homes in the Sproughton area were also affected.

Anglian Water said it believes repair work is still going on to the road surface but no homes should be off water.

In a statement, the company apologised for any inconvenience caused to customers.

Westbourne Academy, in Marlow Road, was affected by the problems on a crucial GCSE exam day.

However teachers told students that exams would proceed as usual and all students were still expected to attend.
