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.
