A late-night burst pipe in Hornsey High Street has left some residents without water. 

The burst pipe was reported at 1.40am, with residents from the High Street and the surrounding roads reporting no water, or low pressure.  

Sainsbury’s was initially closed on Wednesday morning, as workers from Thames Water on the junction of the High Street and Church Lane tried to fix the leak, following gushes of water overnight.  

A spokesperson for Thames Water said: “We’re sorry to customers in the N8 area who have no water or lower pressure than normal following a burst main in Hornsey High Street.   

“Our team were quick to respond and have got the water back on for many of the customers affected.  

“They’re now doing everything they can to get supplies back to normal for the rest, including using tankers to pump water into the pipe network.” 

Church Lane will be closed for five days, with diversions in place, while repairs to the pipe and surrounding area are completed.
