Staff had to be moved to other call centres on Saturday night because of the problems at Lloyd House.

The force reassured the public that although there might be delays for people using 101 or Live Chat, emergency 999 calls would not be affected.

It said staff were relocated to Bournville Lane, Birmingham, which was open 24 hours.

At 12.20pm on Sunday the force reported that the problem had been sorted.

It tweeted: "#UPDATE | The water supply is back up and running at Lloyd House.

"We apologies for any delays caused to our 101 and Live Chat services. 999 calls were not affected.

"Thank you for your patience while we worked to resolve this."

Sorry, we are not accepting comments on this article.
