A SCHOOL is likely to be closed all day after a burst water pipe caused a substantial leak.

Burghfield St Mary's Primary School reported no water at the school following the incident on Theale Road on Tuesday morning.

Many houses remain without water and supply is expected to return by the end of the day.

The primary school now has water although some residential properties are still experiencing no water or low pressure.

A spokesman for Thames Water said: “We are sorry to those customers who may currently be experiencing low pressure, or no water in and around Burghfield this morning.

“This is due to a burst water main on Theale Road.

“We have a team on site who are undertaking a repair and we hope to have all customers back in supply by this evening at the latest.”
