RESIDENTS in Leyland are suffering from low water pressure according to utilities chiefs.

United Utilities have posted on social media about the issue which was first reported this morning at 7am.

In the statement they said: "You may have noticed that the water is coming out of your tap slower than usual or may have gone off altogether.

"We’ve been out to see what might be causing this and found a burst pipe on Moss Lane.

"A team of engineers are on their way to Moss Lane to begin the repairs to the burst water pipe. They should be on site as soon as possible this morning.

"We're sorry for the trouble this may be causing you and we will get your taps flowing normally again as quickly as we can."
