Residents of a Brixton estate told water is unsafe to drink

People living on an estate in south London who have been without running water for almost three weeks are demanding full compensation. It comes after pipes ruptured at the Loughborough Park Estate in Brixton. Residents have been told the water in their homes isn't safe to drink. Reporter Reya El-Salahi has been speaking to some of those affected.

The development is run by The Guinness Partnership. A spokesperson for the housing association said: 

"We are happy to say that water has now been restored to all blocks at Loughborough Park. We'd like to apologise again for the disruption our customers have experienced... As a purely precautionary measure, as the pipes have been dormant for a period of time, we are advising customers not to drink the water until we have tested it to ensure it is suitable for drinking."
