DOZENS of households on the Isle of Wight have been left without water this morning (Monday).

Southern Water said a water main on Castle Street, in East Cowes, had been damaged by a third party working the area at around 8.30am.

The company confirmed it received around 30 calls from people in the area, who said said they had lost their water supply.

A spokeswoman said: "We're working as fast as we can to fix the pipe and restore water supplies."

*Water supplies were restored at around 10:30am.
