West London flooded as burst pipe forces residents to evacuate
Fire crews deploy rescue boats in Hammersmith while areas are left without tap water
People have been evacuated from their homes and parts of west London have been left without water after a burst main submerged a street in Hammersmith.
Firefighters were using boats to rescue people trapped in cars and restaurants on King Street near Ravenscourt Park tube station in the early hours of Saturday morning, with nearly a foot of standing water in some areas.
Our engineers are onsite (and more on there way) at the mains burst in King Street #Hammersmith We are sorry, and working to resolve the situation as quickly as we can. We are aware some customers are without water or have low pressure. We will post updates as we have them.
