Water customers in the SY7 area of Craven Arms had their supply returned at 8.28pm, said Severn Trent.

The water company said its teams carried out some essential repairs and this had an unanticipated effect on pressure and supply in the area.

The issue first arose at about 4.40pm on Wednesday and engineers said they were confident this repair would be completed by 9pm.

Supplies were restored at 8.28pm.

In a statement on their incident page, a spokesperson for Severn Trent said: "We’re pleased to inform you that the works in your area are now completed, and the water supply is back to normal.

"For those that were impacted by this we’d like to thank you for your continued patience whilst this was being carried out."
