Smelly and dirty water warning for North Lanarkshire

Nine schools have been closed and thousands of people have been told not to cook, drink or wash with tap water in North Lanarkshire.

About 6,000 properties are affected after complaints about the taste and smell of water.

Scottish Water said there seems to be an oily substance in the mains supply and are working to ascertain the source of the problem.
