Homes in central Blackpool, Layton and Staining have had their water supplies restored after a “complicated” burst pipe was fixed by engineers.

Engineers from United Utilities were called out to the burst under the premium bonds site on Mythop Road, Blackpool, at around 5am on Wednesday morning.

A spokesman for United Utilities said: “Engineers have been on site working to repair the main.

“They have finished repairs and water should start to flow normally as the pressure in the water main builds.

“Again, we’re sorry to those customers affected by this and thank them for their patience.”
