Residents in a village near Inverness now have their water supply restored after waking up to no water to their homes this morning.

The problem in Croy was understood to be a burst water main, that happened at some point overnight.

Scottish Water say the repairs have now been restored in the IV2 area – but it may take a short while for the water to return to homes.

At 8.50am, the operator posted a message on its website, which read: "Repairs to a burst water pipe which caused the interruption to water supplies for customers in Croy IV2 have been completed.

"The water supply will gradually come in to service for customers during this period.

"While the supply is being restored please be aware that you may experience no water supply, low / intermittent pressure or discoloured water.

"Please see our Unplanned Interruptions to Your Water Supply factsheet on our website which contains more detailed information on the temporary issues you may experience."

It continued: "If you have experienced flooding due to this incident and need support, please call us on 0800 0778 778 or via one of the other methods on our contact us page."
