SCOTTISH Water says it is working to restore supplies to an estimated 12,000 properties in Inverclyde after a main burst near a Greenock primary school.

The supplier says residents may experience low pressure, intermittent supplies or no water at all while the issue at Whinhill Primary School is being resolved.

The burst pipe is affecting customers in the PA15, PA16, PA17, PA18 and PA19 areas of Inverclyde.

Footage shows water gushing on to Hole Farm Road, which has caused flooding at its junction with Kenilworth Crescent.

Greenock Telegraph:

A spokesperson for Scottish Water said: “Our operatives are now working to isolate the damaged section of water main, and we are arranging our repairs teams to attend to start repair work a soon as possible.

"We will work to restore normal supplies to affected customers as quickly as possible.

"We apologise for the inconvenience and thank them for their patience and understanding."
