The boil water notice has been lifted for thousands more homes, United Utilities has announced.

Although householders in large swathes of Lancashire are still being advised to boil their drinking water after cryptosporidium contamination was discovered, tonight the restrictions have been further lifted.

Homes in Fulwood, Leyland, parts of Chorley, Bamber Bridge and Lostock Hall are among those whose tap water has now been declared safe.

Restrictions on around 80,000 homes were lifted on Thursday.

The full list of postcodes where restrictions are off is below. All householders are advised to check their postcode before they begin drinking tap water again
