Anglian Water has discovered an issue with the water supply in the Northamptonshire village of Upper Boddington.

As a result, people in the area are being urged to boil their water until the issue has been resolved.

A spokesperson for Anglian Water said: “We have discovered an issue with the water in Upper Boddington, but we want to stress that this is not a county-wide problem. This is just an issue in that one village.

“As a result of the issue, we are asking customers in Upper Boddington to boil their tap water and leave it to cool before using it for drinking, cooking, preparing food and brushing teeth until further notice.

 “This is a precaution after test results showed the water in Upper Boddington may not be up to its usual high standards. The advice also applies to drinking water for pets and livestock. But it is still ok to use your water for washing, bathing and flushing toilets.

“We’ll be delivering letters and information cards to all those affected this evening and we’ve spoken to Boddington C of E School about bottled water supplies. We are working hard to get things back to normal as quickly as possible and will keep in touch with updates.”
