Some homes in Ryde have been left without water this afternoon (Thursday).


Isle of Wight Radio listeners say a burst water main on Ashey Road – near to Trotters Riding School – has caused the outage.

Islands Roads has closed the road from its junction with Bettesworth Road and Smallbrook Lane.

Addresses in Argyll Street, Newport Street and some properties in Haylands and Binstead have been affected. Some residents have no water and others have low pressure.

Southern Water says it is aware and staff are dealing with the incident.
