A water main has burst in Holloway Road this morning, just 24 hours after a rupture in Upper Street wrecked dozens of homes and shops.
A Thames Water spokesman said a team was working to repair the pipe and there should be no impact on customers in the N7 area.
But on Twitter the company wrote: “#N7 Customers may experience low pressure/no water in area due to burst main on Holloway Road. Repair team on site now to fix.”
One resident of Lough Road said she had no water this morning as a result.
Thames Water has now said on Twitter the water has been rerouted around the burst pipe and supplies should be restored.

Work is expected to go on throughout the week to fix the burst pipe in Upper Street, which will be closed southbound in the meantime.
