Lenham: Schools closed as thousands of homes left without water

Customers have expressed frustration on social media, and criticised the company for not providing more convenient access to water.

Around 20,000 homes supplied by Thames Water were left with no running water, and a host of other water companies across England and Wales have reported problems.

Schools have been forced to close and 7,000 homes in Lenham have been left without water or very little pressure following a huge number of burst pipes after snowstorms.

Some schools in the capital have said they will be closed on Monday because they can not guarantee running water.

Extra water is being added to the local networks and emergency work to fix leaks and bursts is being carried out.

Distribution sites have been set up in London for customers to collect bottled water.

A tweet from the Dunraven School said: "We'd hoped things would have been resolved by now".

A lorry unloads bottled water distributed by Thames Water after mains supplies to homes were cut off following bad weather, in Balham, south London, March 5, 2018. "We will update families when we can".

South London resident Natasha Prayag told Sky News she was without water late into Sunday night, after her supply was cut off on Saturday evening.

South West London and St George's Mental Health NHS Trust also took to Twitter to appeal to Thames Water for bottled water for its patients - and it seems to have worked.

"My consistency is served by Thames Water".

"I am concerned for all the elderly people stuck without water or information - and disabled people". The worst snowstorm in almost 30 years caused water pipes to freeze last week, during a cold blast from Siberia dubbed "the Beast from the East" which grounded planes, stopped trains, blocked roads and closed schools.

On a normal winter's day, the company produces on average 500 million litres of water, but yesterday the high demand resulted in 630 million litres being treated and sent out into the network.

"We are getting as much extra water into our network as we can and sincerely apologise to all our customers who are now without water or who have low pressure".
