Water supply is expected to take another couple of days until it is restored, with properties expected to see more disruptions today.

United Utilities have worked hard through the night to continue repairing the water main pipe at Selside, Kendal that was damaged in Storm Ciara.

A map provided of the Eden area by United Utilities shows that those properties in the red area were the ones at risk of disruption to water supply.

The green areas were expected to maintain water supplies.

However, overnight many of these properties in the green area are now in the red area.

A spokesman for United Utilities said: "All those customers who are in the red zone on the map are likely to continue to experience poor pressure or no supply whilst the repair is ongoing.

"If you are in the amber zone you may experience some disruption and as a result we would also encourage you to take the necessary precautions.

"We’ve got various free bottled water stations in the area with staff on hand to help, which will be open from 8am to 10pm today and tomorrow."

The bottled water stations are at:

  • Glenridding Village Hall, Penrith, CA11 OQA
  • The Crown Inn, Ivegill, CA4 0PT
  • Shap Memorial Hall, Shap, Penrith CA10 3NL
  • Market Square, Kirkby Stephen, CA17 4QN
  • Moot Hall, Boroughgate, Appleby-in-Westmorland, CA16 6XE
  • Pooley Bridge Village Hall, Pooley Bridge, Penrith, CA10 2NL
  • Greystoke Village Greystoke, Penrith, CA11 0TP
  • Tebay Services (Northbound), Westmorland Place, Orton, CA10 3SB

For customers with particular needs on the priority services list, United Utilities have been delivering bottled water throughout the night and will continue to deliver this throughout the day.
