Anglian Water is currently working to repair the leak
HUNDREDS of homes in Ely are without water this morning after a water main burst in the city.
The district council has also closed five of its public toilets after being notified at 8am that there had been a problem.
Anglian Water is currently working to repair the leak but told the Ely Standard it estimated that the work will take at least six hours until the repairs have been completed as the systems refill.

Keith Stronach, principal facilities officer at East Cambridgeshire District Council, said: “Unfortunately the burst water main in Cresswell Lane in Ely has forced us to close five out of our six public toilets in the city. Anglia Water are currently working to fix the leak and we hope to have the facilities open as soon as possible once the systems have refilled.”
