UNITED Utilities engineers are working to repair a leak, which has caused poor pressure or no water for Middlewich residents.

An inspector was sent out early this morning, before 2am, to investigate the cause, and later found a leak in Kinderton Street was the cause of the pressure drop.

By 5.30am a team of engineers had been sent out, and they are now on site beginning to repair the damage.

A United Utilities spokesman said: "In order to help restore and maintain your water supply we have our water on wheels vehicles pumping into the main although, this may be at a reduced pressure until the repairs are complete.

"Thank you for your patience while we work to get this fixed."
