THE national water company has apologised to around 80 homes in Clydebank after a burst pipe disrupted their supply.

Scottish Water say they responded quickly to the burst pipe on Russell Road but warned that many may still experience brown or discoloured water until around 3pm.

A Scottish Water spokesperson said: “Our teams were quickly on hand to locate the burst pipe and begin the repair and we would like to apologise for the inconvenience this has caused.

"As the water supply is restored some customers may that their water is brown or discoloured.

"This is common after a disruption and we ask customers to run their cold kitchen tap at half pressure until this runs clear.”

The supplier added the pipe burst at around 11am this morning.
