UK spy centre GCHQ hit by major leak - as water supply is disrupted along with 7,000 homes


Britain's main spy centre has been hit by a major leak - when its main WATER supply was disrupted.

A burst water main affected GCHQ and around 7,000 homes in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

But while local residents and businesses struggled and 17 schools closed today, work has carried on as normal for the spy centre which has more than 5,600 staff.

Bosses insisted they had "robust contingency plans" - although they refused to go into any more detail about them. (That's the secret service for you)

The leak came as the UK experienced it's coldest night this Autumn - and forecasters predicted temperatures of -11C to come.
