A burst water main is currently affecting an area of a Tynedale town, with repairs currently ongoing.

Northumbrian Water are dealing with a burst pipe in the Lowgate area of Hexham which they believe is causing low or no water pressure in surrounding properties as a result.

After the fault was reported earlier this morning, the water firm have confirmed they believe they’ve found the source of the problem and are hoping to resolve the issue as soon as possible

They expect the problem to be repaired by 2:30pm this afternoon.
