Village's bottled water delivery as pipes are burst

Event organiser Victoria Bryceson was really pleased with the mega-turnout to the festival

"It is unacceptable that thousands of Londoners remain without water this morning", Khan said on Twitter.

"So during the cold weather, a lot of pipes will have burst but they're only starting to leak now that the temperatures have increased and the water has thawed".

The suppliers have effectively told up to 13million people across London and the South of England to curb their use of water or risk having none at all.

"I have sought assurances from Thames Water that they are doing everything possible to fix the problems and get the supply switched back on for everyone".

Leaking pipes in London left 12,000 households without water or suffering from very low pressure on Monday, said Thames Water, which was providing bottled water to customers at two locations.

"When water freezes within a pipe it expands, putting more pressure on the pipes and joints, often causing pipes to split or joints to pull apart, and then when it thaws the water will start to leak out".

"Where possible, take short showers rather than baths, do not leave taps running unnecessarily and only run washing machines and dish washers when you have a full load", the company said in a statement on its website.

Both Southern Water and South East Water said they were providing bottled water to the areas affected. This will make a real difference.

A spokesperson for Thames Water said: "We are really sorry to all those customers who are now without water".

A spokesperson for Thames Water said: "We are really sorry for the ongoing disruption, and we have every available resource working to resolve it as quickly as possible".

On Sunday about 6,000 households in Sussex were without water.
