More than a thousand homes still experiencing water restrictions

Up to 1,400 homes in Co. Dublin remain affected by the water restrictions which have been in place for over a week.

It comes after it emerged last Thursday week that routine testing by the Dublin City Council's laboratory showed high levels of bacteria in 16 houses, making drinking water unsafe for Clontarf residents.

Investigations into the cause of the contamination is ongoing by the council, focused on the south-east of the area.

Further tests have ruled out the presence of E.coli or metals.
