    People living in Hornsea say they're still waiting for answers after they were left without water for three days.

    Some homes suffered low water pressure and several were left with no water at all last weekend because of damage to underground pipes.

    Supplies have now been restored, but it's thought dry ground conditions have caused several pipes to crack.

    Caitlin Burgin and Marie Greenwood say they didn't have any water:
