Engineers are working round-the-clock to repair the damage in many parts of the United Kingdom after melting ice left burst pipes. In Northern Ireland, 4,400 people were still without running water.

About 3,000 properties in Thirsk, Yorkshire, were left without water on Friday after a pipe supplying a pumping station burst.

Meanwhile, Northern Ireland Water said it could be next week before everyone is re-connected.
