A Southern Water spokesman said: 

“We are sorry that some customers in Ryde lost their water supply, or had low pressure, this morning.

“Some customers may notice discoloured water coming from their taps for a short while. This is quite normal after a burst and the water is harmless.

“If this happens, run a mains-fed cold tap, usually a kitchen tap, until the water clears”.
