A number of properties in two north-east towns are without water today.
Homes in the Kintore and Dunecht areas lost supply earlier today.
Scottish Water have confirmed they have isolated the burst in Kintore, with the remaining nine homes expected to be restored by this evening.
And in Dunecht water was restored to the affected 15 properties at around 12.30pm this afternoon.
A statement on the utility firm’s website said: “We would like to apologise to the customers affected in Kintore and Dunecht for the disruption to their water supply and thank them for their patience while we restore supplies to normal.”
