United Utilities engineers have managed to identify and fix a leak that left Kirkby-in-Furness residents without water and experiencing problems with water pressure. 

United Utilities confirmed on its website this morning (February 11) around 9.30am that engineers were investigating the issue.

A spokesperson for UU has now said: "Just to let you know, we’ve found the cause of no water or low pressure to be a leak on School Road.

"Now that we’ve identified the cause of the problem, our team will assess the issue and start the repair work shortly. Thank you for your patience. 

"We’ll make sure to keep you fully updated on this page with any further information."
