A burst pipe has caused water supply issues to a number of homes in South Ayrshire this morning.

Water is off in several streets in Girvan after a pipe burst in Rowan Road.

And residents could be without water for at least another three and a half hours yet, Scottish Water have confirmed.

A Scottish Water spokesperson said: "We are currently repairing a burst water pipe in Rowan Road, which is causing the interruption to the water supply for customers in Girvan

"The full repair will take an estimated three and a half hours from now to complete.

"The water supply will gradually return to normal for customers once the repair has been completed. We expect it will take up to an hour for all customers to have normal water supply restored.

"While we carry out the repair please be aware that you may experience no water supply, low/intermittent pressure or discoloured water.

"At present we expect to complete the repair in a timeframe which means we do not plan to provide bottled water at distribution locations.
