Water supply should have resumed for Brent residents affected by burst pipe on the North Circular Road
More than 1,000 households were left with no supplies
Water supply has returned to hundreds of homes which were left without any following a burst pipe on the A406 this morning.
Thames Water said that it has managed to get water supply back to homes across the affected area and that the east-bound section of the road was also open again.
The pipe burst this morning and the company received complaints from 1,300 households that they had no water supply.
Other residents complained of low water pressure following the burst which flooded the Hendon Underpass on the North Circular Road in Brent Cross.

“The east-bound section of the A406 has now been re-opened and we will be working through the night to try and get traffic moving both ways before tomorrow’s rush hour.
“The vast majority of customers who were without water this morning should now have their supplies restored and we are working to ensure those remaining - about 100 properties which are either high-up or at the end of the network - back on as soon as possible.
“We’re really sorry for the disruption this is causing. We’re doing everything we can to get things back to normal as soon as we can.”
