The water supply in Telford has been restored for the majority of people following a cracked pipe.

Severn Trent Water says it has managed to restore water for 17,500 customers.

They say many are seeing their water coming and going throughout the day as they work on the repair.

Residents in the TF7, TF3, TF4 and TF8 areas have been affected and some in the Much Wenlock area are also experiencing low pressure.

The company says there is also a possibility that the water may be a bit murky, which is nothing to worry about.

Bottled water is being hand out at:

  • Tesco in Madeley, TF7 5AB
  • Museum of the Gorge car park in Ironbridge, TF8 7DQ
  • William Brookes School in Much Wenlock, TF13 6NB
  • Nearby Birchmeadow Park, Broseley TF12 5NS from 6:30pm tonight

The southbound slip road from the A442 Queensway to the A442 Brockton Way is closed to allow the engineers to work on the pipe.

Drivers are being asked to avoid the area at this time
