A burst water main in Perth is causing pressure problems for local residents.

Scottish Water said engineers were working on the issue at the city’s Rannoch Road on Friday afternoon.

Residents are warned it could lead to discoloured water running from their taps.

A spokesman said: “A burst water main has been located on Rannoch Road causing no water, low pressure and discoloured water to the surrounding area.

“We have a squad on site and hope to have the repairs complete as quickly as possible.”

He added: “At the moment we do not have a time frame for when the water will be restored but we will update this message and our additional customer service channels as soon as more information becomes available to us.

“Apologies for the inconvenience caused this afternoon.”
