While Portsmouth Water’s website said the issue was caused by ‘general maintenance’, customers phoning the company were greeted with an automated message citing an ‘emergency situation’.

The firm said on Twitter: ‘Apologies to our customers in Emsworth who have no water. We have inspectors on site and another on their way and we’re aiming to restore the supply as soon as possible.’

It later added: ‘Supplies are now being restored. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.’
