Reader have got in touch with the Harrogate Advertiser today with reports of what they say are problems with very low water pressure - and possible leaks and flooding on the Stray.

Yorkshire Water has already responded to one member of the public by saying on Twitter it was looking into a "possible burst" in the area.


The suspected leak has reportedly hit residents' household taps in the HG2 8LW area, in particular, near St Winifreds Avenue not far from the Stray.
