WORK to replace a pipe that left more than a dozen Cassington homes without water this morning has now been completed.
Thames Water was carrying out the work on behalf of a developer.
It had written to 12 properties beforehand saying they would be without water for a few hours but the work affected more homes in the area.
Thames Water spokeswoman Becky Trotman said: “There was a slight problem in that it knocked out the supply to a couple more properties. The job is finished now and water should be running again.”
The company had earlier reported the problem online saying customers in the OX29 postcode area may have low water pressure or be without water after a water main burst but Ms Trotman said this was an error on its website.
