Burst pipe leaves parts of Penryn without water for 12 hours - VIDEO
Parts of Penryn were left without water for 12 hours last night and the Kernick Industrial Estate "looked like Venice" according to eyewitnesses after a pipe burst on the site.
Water could be seen gushing out from a broken 12 inch water main from approximately 6.45pm, which "mainly affected students living on Tremough Campus" according to a spokesperson from South West Water.
"Customers in the wider Penryn area" were also affected, however.
A bowser and water containers were delivered to the campus and workers struggled on throughout the night to fix the burst.
Normal service was restored by 7am.
