Water shortage after pipe bursts in Cumbria
A burst main has closed a north Cumbria school and left about 280 homes without water.
Homes in Boothby between Lanercost and Brampton have been affected, a spokesman for United Utilities said.
Water supplies were expected to be restored to most homes by Thursday evening.
Lees Hill Primary closed early as a result and United Utilities has apologised for the disruption caused by the burst pipe.
