Thames Water apologises as fault leaves homes without water

Thames Water has apologised as huge swathes of West and South London were left without water or with low water pressure this morning after a power supply problem.

The issue has affected postcodes in Westminster and Kensington as well as across the South west, in Clapham, Stockwell, South Lambeth, Vauxhall, Battersea, Wimbledon and Wandsworth.

Residents took to social media to describe the situation as a “massive outrage”.

One West London resident took to X, the social media site formerly known as Twitter, to complain about the situation.

@SivaThambisetty said: “My elderly neighbours and everyone else on the street have no water and no one can get through to anyone.

“More information please.”

The firm said that the problem was caused by a power supply issue that was affecting its Ashford and Hampton water treatment works in West London.

A spokesman from Thames Water said: “We’re really sorry if you have low pressure or no water.

“We are working hard to fix the issue and to get things back to normal.

“We’ll provide further updates here as soon as we have more information.”
