Residents in the seaside town bemoaned being left without a supply and complained to South West Water at about 5.30pm yesterday (Thursday).

He said yesterday evening: “Our technicians are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible.”
The company repoted water was restored at 10pm but residents were still complaining of being without it at 10.30pm.
