Schools close and hospital appointments cancelled as shops sell out of bottled water
Up to 100,000 properties in London have been left with little or no water after a large pipe at a waterworks burst, causing a number of schools to close and hospital appointments to be cancelled.
Thames Water said the fault at its Hampton site on Wednesday had caused problems in the west and south-west of the capital, and that this prevented water being pumped into its pipe network across west London, affecting the TW, KT and W postcodes.
