A water leak in Lostock Hall has left homes with no water to shower or wash with.
The issue is affecting the Hennel Lane and Milwood Road area, and was reported around 6am this morning (26th Nov).
United Utilities have engineers at the scene and are looking to fix the problem as soon as possible.
A statement from the water company said: “A leak on the junction of Hennel Lane and Millwood Road affecting customers in PR5, has been spotted and reported to us. Our inspector is on his way to investigate this, but we do believe this to be the cause for some of you having no water or just a trickle.
“We’re sorry for the trouble this may be causing you and we will get your taps flowing normally again as quickly as we can.”
