The company confirmed that the work was completed just before 7pm on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day a company spokesman said: "We’re really sorry if you’re currently experiencing a loss of pressure or water supply to your home in the SY7 area of Bucknell. Our teams are carrying out some essential repair work in the area.

"Although we didn’t anticipate this affecting our customers, we’re aware the work being carried out may be impacting some customers' water supply.

"The team on site are working as quickly and efficiently as possible and are hoping to have supplies back on very soon.

"We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause."
