Water began leaking into the roadway after a pump in Coleham Head was tampered with by "youths" on Thursday, the Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service said, and a crew was called out at about 10pm.

A fire service spokesperson said that firefighters could not fix the issue and so Severn Trent Water was called to attend.

Severn Trent and West Mercia Police have been approached for further information.
