Thames Water confirmed by website and recorded phone message that a large water main had burst within the Olympic Park, leaving homes and businesses in the area without water. The last recorded message on the Thames Water phoneline (superceding the website update by half an hour) reassures anxious callers that the connection has been reinstated - but due to the scale of the incident, water supplies won't return to normal until later this afternoon. Londonist sources can confirm that the burst water main has nothing to do with either the latest stage in development at the Aquatics Centre or the new mixer tap in a kitchen in Bow installed just as the water main rupture happened.
