Hundreds of homes have been left without water in west Cornwall.

South West Water say it is because of a burst main in Hayle.

Locals in the TR20 area are being warned it could be off until Tuesday night, but engineers are re-routing supplies.

South West Water has released the following statement:

"We apologise to customers in parts of west Cornwall who have been affected by a large burst water main in Nanpusker Road, Hayle.

"We have isolated the burst and are re-routing water supplies to the affected areas, including customers in some parts of St Ives, Carbis Bay and Nancledra.

"Customers may be experiencing no water, discolouration or low pressure to their water supplies.

"We have been in contact with vulnerable customers throughout the day to ensure alternative water supplies are available to them.
 
"Water supplies are recovering while we continue to make repairs to the burst water main.

"We'd like to thank customers for their patience and apologise for the inconvenience caused while we complete this emergency work."

The helpline number to call if you are experiencing problems is 0844 9801 895.
