Thames Water facing critical tweets as residents complain about water looking like it came "straight out of the Thames"

Thames Water faced a number of critical tweets this morning as residents complained of miscoloured water and low pressure from taps and showers.

According to one disgruntled Londoner, the water looked like it had “come straight out of the Thames”.

But Twitter user Henry Hardwicke tried to look on the bright side of the situation.

People affected by the miscoloured water were worried that the water wasn’t safe to use.

The brown water is affecting occupants in Paddington.

Thames Water expects the water to be back to normal by 6pm this evening.
