Severn Trent Water were made aware some customers in the WR9 area of Tenbury Wells experiencing water supply interruptions this morning.

They later discovered it was all due to a burst pipe at Little London Road.

And after first believing they could fix it by midday, they now say it could take until at least 4pm to get the supply up and running again.

A company spokesperson said: "Our teams are working hard to get your water flowing again, but the repair is taking us a little longer than we first anticipated."

In fact they reported it all fixed and returned to normal at just before 2.30pm.
