SEDBERGH Medical Practice has re-opened after shutting because of a lack of running water.

The surgery announced this morning it would be closed to patients until further notice but would be available for phone consultations, after suffering problems with its water supply.

However, it announced shortly after midday that it had been able to re-open.

It follows an incident in May when a mechanical valve failure in the water supply caused the surgery to shut.

Latest updates are being posted on the practice’s website at
