A number of homes in a Norfolk village were without water due to high demand.

People living in Sutton, near Stalham, and the surrounding areas were left with little or no water this morning. 

It comes after temperatures exceeded 30C at the weekend following a number of weather warnings

A statement on Anglian Water's website read: "We're really sorry but some customers in Sutton and surrounding areas may be experiencing very low water pressure.

"It's because demand for water is very high at the moment. 

"Customers in your area are telling us they have low water pressure.

"Or teams are working flat out to keep taps running, but with demand so high, everything we're producing is being used straight away - there's only so much we can produce in our works and through our pipes.

"Which is why we need your help too to save as much water as possible, to avoid interruptions to your water supply. 

"You can help keep your water supply flowing by only using water for the essentials, like drinking, cooking and washing."

Water supplies were restored at about 11.30am.
