An apology has gone out after residents in Redruth were left without water and unable to wash their hands during the coronavirus crisis.

People living in the Treskerby area told Pirate FM they were affected on Tuesday afternoon because of planned maintenance.

South West Water says the work to the water main was "essential".

All supplies have now been restored and bosses have apologised for any inconvenience caused.

“All customers’ supplies have now been restored.
